A father and his eleven year old son are suing Raigmore hospital in Inverness for over £200,000 in compensation after the death of the boy's mother and the baby girl she was carrying, reports the Scotland on Sunday.
Mrs McIvor was admitted to hospital with what was believed to be a urine infection, but which turned out to be acute pancreatitis. By the time the pancreatitis was diagnosed, Mrs McIvor's unborn baby had died, and Mrs McIvor herself died the next day.
According to the Scotland on Sunday, the family's legal bid alleges errors in Mrs McIvor's maternity records and in her treatment. The health authority has denied the claims.
