Mohammad Imran Hussain, husband and father of four, who worked as business development manager for US giant Dow Chemical, suffered permanent brain damage, rendering him disabled and incapable of caring for himself. He checked into Mediclinic for a routine heart operation which was successful, but due to a lack of planning and preparation, there was a substantial delay in recognising a common post operative complication. As a result, he went into cardiac arrest and his heart stopped for almost 10 minutes, causing permanent brain injury. A US expert said “It is clear to me that the confluence of events led to a completely avoidable catastrophe”.

Stirling continued “We hope that Dubai recognises the importance of this case as a step towards saving lives.”
