He died of heart attack after waiting for eight hours in ER L-EMV

A 36-year-old woman, mother of two young girls, in good health and without a diagnosis of serious illness (fibromyalgia only suspected) died at Castellón General Hospital after spending eight hours in the ER, complaining of chest pain and feeling of suffocation This past October and six months after the tragic and sudden death of Sandra Galera, her family, devastated by what happened, is determined to take action and filed a claim for paternal responsibility against the health center for “low attendance”. Is. ,

The uneasiness of the victim started on October 17, 2022. After several hours with chest pains, her husband called 112 to request an ambulance, but, according to her account, a doctor told her they could not send her because “they were there for more were urgent matters” and instructed him to give diazepam to the patient. The pain and suffocation persisted, so the next morning his relatives called 112 again to request an ambulance to take him to hospital.

The complainants claim that the transfer request was not fulfilled and they were urged to call their health centre, which they claim they tried to contact seven times that morning, but received no response . Finally, seeing their daughter’s “terrible pain”, they decided to take her to their private car and put her in a chair to take her to the ER.

arrival at hospital

Arriving at the center around 10:30 a.m. on the 18th, the family says they went through triage and a waiting room, where Sandra, who insisted she couldn’t breathe and was in excruciating pain, was given diazepam. At around 2:45 p.m., his mother recalled that they took him to a box, where they examined him for the first time. «They told me that they would come to do an analysis, but no one came. Suddenly, the machine they had attached it to started beeping and it said on the screen: heart attack,” Sandra’s mother said in a statement to the health department.

The witness says that, despite going down the corridor looking for health workers, they did not attach importance to the incident and even told him that “sometimes the cables on that machine fail.”

At around 4:00 pm they replaced Sandra from the box and a doctor examined her and told her mother that they would do an electro and an analysis. The family says they took a long time to return for analysis and, in addition, the nurse had problems pricking her, while Sandra continued to “complain of pain, lack of strength and rapid wheezing”.

The patient’s mother asked them to give her oxygen as she was having trouble breathing for hours, but they told her that the doctor would have to allow it. Finally, they injected her intramuscularly and Sandra began breathing in a “very strange” way, so her mother went outside to help.


Seeing her, paramedics grabbed a defibrillator, called for ICU doctors and tried to revive Sandra, resuscitating her twice, but alerted the family that the heartbeat was weak. Despite efforts to keep her alive, she died in the emergency department.

The death was deemed judicious and an autopsy was performed, the medico-legal conclusion of which referred to it as “acute myocarditis due to coronavirus infection with terminal myocardial injury”. The family respects the autopsy, but stresses that Sandra, who was vaccinated against the virus, never had a diagnosis of Covid or symptoms.

For all these reasons, they request that a file be opened for marital responsibility and they ask for information from the hospital about the personnel who took care of the deceased and the treatments applied. They stress that they “do not want to point fingers at the unsanitary circumstances of the toilet, but they do want to show that the deceased was not given adequate assistance from Castellón.”
