Rome, April 8 - An inquiry has been opened after a
53-year-old woman died after waiting 14 hours in a Rome hospital
emergency room, Italian consumer group Codici said on Monday.
The woman was taken to the Tor Vergata hospital suffering
from severe abdominal pain from gallstones last Wednesday.
After being left on a stretcher for eight hours, the woman
was placed in a room and administered pain killers, where she
died six hours later from what doctors believe was a perforated
gallbladder.
"We could be looking at the latest in a string of medical
malpractice cases," Codici National Secretary Ivano Giacomelli
said.
