Health bosses have apologised to a family for not giving them enough information about their loved one’s brain condition.
The woman left Aberdeen Royal Infirmary after surgery impacting her brain and spinal chord.
A support worker complained to the Scottish Public Services Ombudsman (SPSO) about her medical care and while SPSO found her car was reasonable, it had concerns about her aftercare.
A new report said: “In relation to the woman’s discharge, we found she had been medically fit for discharge and nursing staff had reasonably managed the discharge planning.
“However, NHS Grampian accepted there had been a failure to provide appropriate information and literature to the woman and her family on discharge and had taken action as a result of these failings.
“We upheld this aspect of the woman’s complaint.
“We also found there had been a delay in arranging the woman’s neuropsychology assessment and she was not advised of the progress of her neurosurgery follow-up appointment when the timescale was not met.”

SPSO asked NHS Grampian to apologise to the woman.
An NHS Grampian spokeswoman said: “This cases represent occasions where we did not provide appropriate care or treatment.
“We accept the findings of the SPSO. We have already written to apologise but would take this opportunity to apologise again.”
