  • Most of this could be prevented if the hospitals were more vigilant (spellings not my strong point, sorry). I know someone how died from H1n1 and it was because the hospital kept giving her new meds and sending her HOME! told her to see her primary dr, so she did the next day (different place) and they admitted her immediately to ICU, she died 2 days later. Her family is now suing the hospital that sent her home 3 days in a row! Her DR said that she should have been admitted days before that, and she most likely would have lived. SHe lost her hubby in 2001 and now her kids have NO parents..
