The article sounds as if the woman was on an external pacer(not a monitor)--removing it could be life threatening, and I can't imagine someone doing that without making sure she's on another unit(i.e., getting a dialysis unit pacer before taking the ER pacer). Removing the shunt seems to be coincidental to her death, unless she was under anesthesia; it's not usually a life threatening procedure. The article seems to examine all causes, even the inconsequential, but doesn't say how seriously septic this woman was(i.e., how badly infected and if it had spread) before going to hospital. I agree with the family: ANY patient should have family around for 'insuring' the best care in any hospital/clinic. Nevertheless, the article raises more questions than it answers and may cast unnecessary shadows on the nephrologist and hospital in general.
