A woman's demanding answers after she woke up from an operation with what she believes is a large burn on her stomach. Joanne Rowley went for a lung biopsy at the Sheffield's Northern General Hospital. Now her family think she may have been burnt in the same way a patient was at Scarborough Hospital a fortnight ago.
Although Joanne asked staff at the hospital what had happened she's received no answers.The Northern General say they are looking into the matter and an investigationis ongoing. But Joanne's family believe she could have been burnt in a similiarway to a patient at Scarborough Hospital after seeing thestory on Calendar. There a surgical solution used to clean the skin ignitedduring an operation.
Joanne says although she's asked for answers none have been forthcoming leaving her angry and frustrated. She is now taking legal advice. What they really want are answers to how a routine lung operation could leave her with a burn to her stomach.
