Police looking into sudden death of domestic worker (updated)

A post mortem failed to determine the cause of death of a 48-year-old Nepalese woman who died on Monday after she was examined and sent home by doctors at Paphos general hospital.

State pathologist Angeliki Papetta did not list a cause of death after the post mortem, pending the results of tissue tests.

Police and the health authorities have launched an investigation into the incident after the woman’s employers suggested there had been negligence on behalf of the hospital.

The woman died early Monday in an ambulance on her way to Paphos hospital. It followed an A&E visit the previous night where she complained to doctors of intense pain to her chest and back.

Her employers had asked for her to be examined by a cardiologist but she was eventually released without one seeing her.

Spokesperson for the state health services organisation Charalambos Charilaou told the Cyprus News Agency the organisation had been informed about the incident and a probe had been ordered.
