      加拿大的全民免费医疗,让很多其他国家的人羡慕,但是里面存在的问题也是致命的:病人往往要等上数个小时才能见到医生的面;而医生多数情况下只是花上十几分钟,甚至几分钟做一下常规的诊断,就开药方打发病人走人……这样的流程应对感冒发烧这样的小毛病没啥问题,但是如果碰上严重病毒或细菌感染,可是会出人命的。

      就在上个月月底,安省渥太华地区一位年轻姑娘,就是这样被医生延误了病情,在就医24小时后不幸逝世。

      据Yahoo.ca报道,这起误诊案发生于上月27日,死者是一位23岁的女孩梅乐(Samantha Lily Mueller,上图)。


      梅乐的母亲回忆,她的女儿是6月25日出现异常状况的,感觉“十分不适”。不过她一开始并没有放在心上,吃了感冒药(Advil),就回房睡觉了。

      第二天凌晨四点左右,梅乐把母亲叫醒,说自己的脖子已不能活动,体温高达40.7度。

      母亲见情况不妙,立刻将女儿送到了Queensway Carleton Hospital的急救室。

      大约两个小时后,梅乐回家了,说是医生也不确定病因,可能是脓毒性咽喉炎或单核细胞增多症(mononucleosis),于是给了她一张青霉素的处方就让她走人了。



      在接下来的几个小时里,梅乐的情况持续恶化。母亲取来了青霉素,可是梅乐吃了就吐。她的体温也在39度上下徘徊。

      渐渐地,梅乐连呼吸都有困难了,皮肤苍白,嘴唇发蓝。家人赶快再将她被送到医院,接受输液和插管治疗。

      直到这个时候,医生还是查不出梅乐是什么病,只估计她是感染了“很强的病毒”,具体是什么就不知道了。

      母亲问医生,会不会是脑膜炎。医生表示,梅乐的症状与脑膜炎不符。

      27日凌晨三点,梅乐不幸在医院逝世。直到她去世后,病毒检验结果才出来,她确实是感染了脑膜炎球菌。

      梅乐的母亲暴怒了。她抓住医生护士大吼,“你为什么让我女儿回家?你为什么让我女儿回家?”直到被人架开。

      事情已经过去半个月,可梅乐的母亲面对着媒体记者还是平静不下来。她怎么也想不通,在健身中心工作的女儿一向身体健康,怎么就忽然走了,而且还是在她就医后不到一天的时间里去世了。

      假如,假如梅乐第一次去医院的时候,医生能多花点时间诊断,带她去做病毒检验,就能知道她患的是脑膜炎,她也不至于送命吧。可是,人生是没有假设的。

      “他们(医生)为什么让我女儿回家?他怎么能给了我女儿一张青霉素的处方,就让她回家了?”面对着镜头,梅乐的母亲不住地质问。可是直到今天,院方都没能给她一个答复。

    医疗体系问题不少。没办法。问题太多。自求多福。少得病,不得大病重病。健健康康混到老。

    Meningitis kills Ottawa woman less than 24 hours after doctors sent her home

    A 23-year-old woman has died of meningitis less than 24 hours after doctors at an Ottawa hospital sent her home with a prescription for penicillin and an uncertain diagnosis.

    Samantha “Lily” Mueller died suddenly on June 27, a day after seeking medical attention at Queensway Carleton Hospital for a stiff neck, sore throat and headache.

    Roxsanna Mueller, Lily’s mother, said her daughter began complaining of feeling “really horrible” on June 25.

    After taking Advil and going to bed, Mueller says her daughter came into her room at 4 a.m., unable to move her neck, and with a temperature of 105.3 degrees Fahrenheit.

    Lily was immediately taken to Queensway Carleton Hospital’s emergency department, but returned home two hours later with a prescription for penicillin instead of answers.

    Mueller says Lily told her that doctors were uncertain of the cause of her illness, but suggested it might be strep throat or mononucleosis.

    Over the next few hours, Lily’s condition began to worsen. Mueller tried giving her daughter the penicillin, but the 23-year-old began vomiting and couldn’t keep the prescription down while her temperature hovered between 102 and 103 degrees.

    The family rushed Lily back to Queensway Carelton where she was admitted. Mueller says her daughter began to complain of pain whenever she tried to breathe, and her appearance had changed drastically; her skin was white with her lips turning blue.

    Lily was intubated to help with breathing and given intravenous antibiotics and fluid. However, doctors still could not give the family answers.

    The family was told by doctors that Lily had “a very strong virus…is it Strep? is it Mono? We don’t know.”

    Mueller says she asked specifically about meningitis, but was told that it did’t comply with Lily’s symptoms.

    Instead, doctors put Lily on a broad spectrum of antibiotics, but informed the family that Lily had become septic.

    Shortly after 3 a.m, Lily died surrounded by her family.

    The National Post. “I couldn’t believe I was talking to her the day before and she was lying there dead.”

    The distraught family began demanding answers as to how the young and healthy employee of a fitness club could suddenly have died.

    I was screaming at them ‘You sent her home. Why did you send her home?’ They just had no answers as to why they sent her home.”

    After her death, it was confirmed that Lily had been infected with meningococcal disease, a dangerous bacterial infection most common among infants, teenagers and young adults.

    “I want to know why they let her go,” Mueller said. “Why did they let her walk out the door with penicillin when they didn’t know what it was?”

    Meningicoccal bacteria can be transmitted through respiratory and throat secretions like saliva through kissing or sharing drinks, or through living in close contact to someone infected.

    Lily’s family has been vaccinated against meningitis and given prophylactic antibiotics to ensure they hadn’t become infected.

    In Canada, menningicoccal disease vaccines are commonly given to infants anywhere from 2 months to 12 months of age. A publicly funded program to administer menningicoccal vaccines to Ontario grade 7 students was launched in 2005 and has since been expanded to include vaccinations against different strains of the disease.

    According to Mueller, Lily had not been vaccinated, as she was already out of Grade 7 when the program began.


    While officials are still searching for the source the infection, Ottawa Public Health and the regional coroner are conducting an investigation into Lily’s death and have asked for names of anyone who may have been in contact with Lily the week before she died.

    “We extend our deepest sympathies to the family and have reached out to them in hopes of discussing the details when they are ready. We realize this must be a very difficult time.”

    Although Mueller does want to speak to medical officials to hear what they have to say about Lily’s treatment and death, she admits she’s not ready to discuss it just yet.

    A celebration of Lily’s life has already taken place.

    A GoFundMe account has been set up by Mueller’s co-workers to help support the family at https://www.gofundme.com/lilymueller.

    估计死了也是白死,敢去砸医院,打医生吗,一枪崩了你。打官司?有钱吗?人家的律师团队不是吃素的,最后不了了之。

    没用的,不是刑事案件,没有证据,官司打起来,没有十年八年的完不了,最终还是律师发财。我认识的一个白人朋友,被误诊子宫癌,切除后没有发现癌细胞,官司打到最后她自己放弃了,她说不想受二遍伤害。

    没误诊就一定救活吗?有些急症什么药也拦不住的,必须中医。现代医学还是有局限性,不是什么病都药到病除的。

    的确,国内的医生水平还是很高的,可能病例多,尤其是专家,真正的专家。三甲医院的医疗器械和条件都不错,就是人太多,有些不适应,有些医院厕所太脏,虽然有人打扫,但人太多,素质低的人也不少。不过,要是不想被耽误,大病有条件还是回国看看吧。

    这种医生是属于典型的无经验,估计没有工作几年,见识的病例不多。相比中国的医生,一天见过几百个病人的经历,对这种病例是那是不会有问题的。某种角度来看中国的医疗水平与国外比,不差。
