PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! A 'kind' young mum-of-three tragically died while on holiday after experiencing unexplained pain for weeks. Lucy Broome collapsed at a holiday resort while enjoying a trip to Blackpool last year. After being rushed to Blackpool Victoria Hospital for emergency treatment, she was initially seen by a nurse and doctor in the back of the ambulance due to a lack of critical care beds, an inquest on Wednesday (November 23) heard. However, when it became clear how serious her situation was, Lucy was taken to a Covid isolation unit which was already at its capacity of four beds. Staff at the hospital then delivered emergency treatment to her which included incubation and a maximum glucose dose to help with low blood sugar, Lancs Live reports.

The inquest also heard that gallstones -which weren't spotted on a CT scan - may have contributed to the pancreatitis which ultimately caused her death. The inquest, held at Blackpool Town Hall, was told how the 36-year-old suffered from chronic pain for weeks before her death but she never found any answers. On two occasions she went to A&E at New Cross Hospital, Wolverhampton, because of her symptom which included pain, weight loss, and dehydration. During her second visit, she was awaiting a referral for a CT scan as well as an ultrasound check which failed to spot any issues. She was then referred to undertake further tests - she received the results of these tests but didn't see a consultant for another two weeks. Victoria Davies, assistant coroner for Blackpool and Fylde, highlighted that the delay led to Lucy being referred to gastroenterology but there was no evidence that it caused or contributed to her death. She added that there was no evidence her treatment during her stay in hospital also contributed to her death. Following her hospital visits, Lucy and her family travelled to Blackpool from their Walsall home. On October 27, Lucy was suffering from intense pain, even struggling to speak, during a hypoglycaemia episode. She was rushed to hospital by paramedics from North West Ambulance Service and was described to be mumbling, agitated, and struggling to breathe. While glucose treatment temporarily improved her condition, it wasn't long before it became worse again. The inquest heard how her liver problems raised suspicions of a paracetamol overdose, but this was not the case.

. It was noted that Lucy appeared agitated while in the unit and even ripped out one of her cannulas. A consultation carried out with experts at the Leeds Liver Unit only resulted in some advice because they didn't have any beds available and because Lucy's condition was not stable enough for her to be transported. Eventually, Lucy was given the maximum dose allowed for glucose but this didn't improve her condition. By the next morning, she was pronounced dead with a post-mortem giving the cause of death as acute pancreatitis. The inquest also heard evidence from doctors who had treated her condition in the months prior to her death and it was accepted that gallstones found in her body may have contributed to her death. Despite this, there was no evidence to confirm this as CT scans recorded before her hospital visit failed to show the stones. Members of Lucy’s family including her parents and Kevin, her husband of 13 years, were present at the hearing. An apology was issued to them due to the delays in performing a CT scan and referral to a gastroenterologist. Ms Davies said: "We can’t say earlier gastroenterology referral would have saved as there is no evidence how long their waiting list was or what they would have done.” Lucy was also described as "kind, caring and witty" as well as someone "who would do anything for her family". Ms Davies recorded a medical cause of death of pancreatitis and a conclusion of natural causes. A funeral notice for Lucy following her death read: "The beloved Wife of Kevin, loving Mother of Evie, and twins Ted and Nancy, the devoted Daughter of Gaynor and her partner Evo, and Roger and his partner Karen, and the dear Sister of Tom, Chloe and Liam. Much loved, Lucy will be sadly missed by all her Family and friends."
