Candi Kaya had attended Stafford Hospital for a planned caesarean, but sustained damage to her to her bladder that was not detected at the time and was left untreated for six days. By the time surgery was conducted to fix the bladder, the damage had already caused a number of medical complications. Ms Kaya had to undergo a number of further operations, and was left with substantial scarring and on-going health problems.
The trust acknowledged that Ms Kaya’s treatment wasn’t to the standard she was entitled to expect, report the BBC, and apologised for the distress caused. A spokesperson said that steps had been taken to improve practices within the hospital.
