Teen Dies 48 Hours After Being Released From Hospital--Found Out Why

A UK mom is mourning the loss of her 16-year-old daughter, who she says was “not given a chance.” She rushed her child to the hospital, but they insisted that she had “just a virus” and released her. The next day, she was rushed back and diagnosed with meningitis. By then, it was too late.

The mother spoke in court during an ongoing investigation into the death of her daughter, Isabel 'Izzy' Gentry. When Claire Booty came home from work one evening, Izzy complained of a headache. By the middle of the night, it became severe. The teen had started vomiting and fainting. An ambulance was called around 1 a.m.

Izzy could hardly walk, and had to keep asking them to turn down the lights because they hurt her eyes. Despite Izzy and her mother's concerns, the hospital insisted the girl just had the flu. They sent her home around 5 a.m.

“Given the symptoms were flu-like, I was given no guidance about what to look out for if her condition deteriorated," Booty explained. “Izzy wasn’t given a chance.”

By late that afternoon, Izzy was being rushed back to the hospital. She'd become unresponsive and was flailing and thrashing her limbs. Doctors then diagnosed the girl with meningitis and put her into intensive care. She was given an MRI that showed brain swelling had already caused irreversible damage. She was already brain-dead.

Izzy died the next night.

Her last Facebook post was written after she was sent home from the hospital the first time. “Lol I knew something was up. Did not expect I’d be rushed to hospital in an ambulance, how peak.”

A notice from the girl's school had gone around warning of meningitis.
