Hospital failed to diagnose broken neck23rd August 2012
Health chiefs in Wales have launched an investigation after a man was sent home from hospital with painkillers after doctors failed to spot he had a broken neck.
Landscape gardener Darren Langabeer, 40, was allegedly beaten up and rushed to Glangwili General Hospital in Carmarthen but was discharged just eight hours later after treatment. But he returned to hospital five days later where it emerged that he could have been paralysed for life by the botched diagnosis. Hywel Dda Local Health Board is now investigating why Darren was allowed to be sent home.
