My husband died almost 3 years ago. He was 49.
He died as a result of atheroslerotic and hypertensive heart disease.
He was seen in 1986 by our gp as a follow up from his place of employment ( it was as stated in the 150 range with a 95 distolic) who did a bp and found it to be high. At the gp's office it read 138/75. There was no mention of any kind of follow up for this ever.
He was seen 4 other times to the year of 2003 and only, once during those 4 visits was his bp ever taken again. It was 156/90. No follow up was recommended. No blood work was ever done.
Those visits were for eye problems which they prescribed TobraDex drops for.
I think he failed to take care of my husband to the best of his ability. Does anyone agree with me on this?
