Failure To Run Simple Tests By Doctors Contributes to Death Of Woman

Published on

Due to a health care change by her employer, Anh Kim Goodson was forced into the Kaiser Permanente system on 12-1-11 and continued for 2-1/2 years until she was eligible for Medicare at age 65 at which time she switched to a non-Kaiser Medicare doctor.

On her first visit to a Kaiser doctor, there was no physical exam done, no X-rays done during her entire time at Kaiser, and no request of prior medical records. Also, she always told new doctors that she had TB as a pre-teenager, but that shows up nowhere in her Kaiser records.  Had her previous records been requested, that would have been seen.

Since she tested positive for HPV, her Kaiser doctors concentrated on cancer detection of the uterus and breast with pap-smears and mammograms. However, lung cancer is also associated with TB & HPV. She was never given an x-ray or CT scan of her lungs. She was also prescribed Vagifem, which can promote cancer.

She died on May 10, 2014 at age 65. David Goodson lost his wife to a horrible medical hell that couldn’t save her because it was stage 4. She was willing to endure any treatment, any amount of pain for another day of life. She fought to the very end.

David was holding her hand when the doctors informed the family that she wouldn’t live another day and the family turned off life support.  She died within seven minutes, but three minutes into dying, her eyes opened wide, staring into space, with tears flowing out.  Twenty seconds later she closed them, and two minutes after that her heart stopped.
