She was 77 . She went for a consultation for a heart pump that would help blood circulate . The doctor said no but we can insert a stent , it will take 20 minutes and 1 day recovery . Two hours later after she was admitted , they told us the tent would not work and 1 day later she died . The never got around to the stent , instead they said she had an infection and would try to find it . Her cardiologist certified this visit to Temple , TX . He never inserted a stent when I asked him , but the Dr at temple offered to insert it . These 2 are colleagues . Death Certificate states Cause of death was Sepsis ; 2 days , and Biventricular heart failure ; 1 year . I have a 15 page report of what happen . My mom did not go there to die , she went there for a consultation and with her medical record , the doctorshould have known that inserting a stent was not possible. She became incoherent as soon as she was admitted.
