Name: Angela Owen
Died: December 21, 2010
Age at death: 45
Cause of death: Medical neglect; strangulated hernia
Location: Skelmersdale, Liverpool, England, UK
When doctors decided Angela needed a hernia operation, her family carefully prepared her for the hospital stay because Angela often became anxious. But when Angela went to the hospital, they made her wait for an hour, then sent her home.
Seven months later, Angela still had not gotten her operation. Even when she went to the hospital, vomiting blood, doctors sent her back home. She came back to the hospital the next day, seriously ill, and died.
