I note the Coroners comments that the death in this case was not occasioned by any blameworthy conduct on the part of the treating surgeon or any of the other medical professional with whom the Deceased came into contact. He further notes, Sadly, the death appears to have been unavoidable. (paragraph 102). Although her death was tragic, Ms Afianos was treated appropriately by medical staff at Royal Darwin Hospital. I thank you for the opportunity to respond to the Coronial Findings and extend my sincere sympathies to the family of Ms Souzana Afianos. Yours sincerely Robert Griew June 2004 cc: Chief Executive Officer, Department of Justice encl. Guideline for Presentation of Post-Operative Patients
