Board decides this week whether to review care for dying Anna Lindh
The Swedish Board of Health and Welfare will decide later this week, whether it will review the care given to former foreign Minister Anna Lindh in the last stages before she died. Lindh was fatally stabbed in a department store in 2003.
The care given by the Karolinska Hospital has been questioned by a report in Tv4's investigative programme Kalla Fakta, which was broadcast this weekend. In the report, several experts say that Lindh could have survived, had the surgery been more focused on damage control.
The hospital has itself asked the Board of Health and Welfare to review whether they did anything wrong. It is very rare for the Board to review cases that are over 2 years old.
