A man in Stavanger died because of a lack of necessary medical care from Stavanger emergency intake, says an audit firm.

The man’s relatives contacted the emergency room because he had stomach pain and was unable to speak for himself, wrote Stavanger Aftenblad. Relatives were then told by the doctor that the patient must have consultation and was sent back home.

Another family member later called 113, and the man underwent surgery for intestinal cracking on the evening of the 6th of October.

In an audit report from the County of Rogaland it shows that the patient died after “complications in the postoperative  area.”

The conclusion says that there are breaches of proper health care.

The emergency Room in Stavanger acknowledged that they have failed, and will use the event for internal learning.
