Once she felt better, she was discharged from the hospital. In a few hours following her return home, she developed similar symptoms which caused her to be admitted again. This time her condition was far worse, her heart rate was very high and according to doctors her lungs had failed.

The hospital neglected this patient. They shouldn't have discharged her just like that without running some tests or making sure that she's stable. This is just sad.
