Medical shortcomings

Medical treatment shortcomings have been implicated in the 2015 death of Hobart woman Anne Maree Woulleman-Jarvis.

A coroner's found the 62 year old, who died eight days after falling and hitting her head, hadn't been referred to a neurosurgeon despite having bleeding on the brain that went unnoticed in a CT scan.

She'd presented to the Royal Hobart Hospital again, two days after the accident with severe headaches, but was released without another scan and died at home.
