Dublin: An Irish jury has found that poor medical care led to the hospital death of Savita Halappanavar who was denied an abortion.

The jury made its ruling on Friday after a two-week coroner’s inquest into the October death of Savita at University Hospital Galway in western Ireland.

The six-man, five-woman jury agreed that the 31-year-old Savita died from “medical misadventure” involving the failure of staff to identify, document or address her development of blood poisoning. She died one week after admission and three-and-a-half days after miscarrying.

The jury endorsed the coroner’s recommendations to improve patient care policies at the hospital and for Ireland’s Medical Council to define precisely when abortions can be performed legally to save a woman’s life.
