 Miscarriage in a Washroom

Lack of timely treatment causes a woman to suffer miscarriage in a toilet, after she waited two hours in the emergency department of Melbourne's Frankston Hospital.

Being 10-12 weeks pregnant with complaints of pain and bleeding, Tracey Lake was referred by her GP to the emergency care at Frankston hospital. The doctor had also spoken with the emergency department explaining her case and the high risk of miscarriage.


Despite the communication and the emergency nature of her case, no medical specialist attended on Tracey.

She went to the toilet where she suffered a miscarriage. Two hours after her miscarriage in the washroom, a doctor finally attended on her.

An investigation has been ordered by the Health Minister.
