California: Mia Amber Died from a Blood Clot

Posted on July 13, 2011


CALIFORNIA: The coronor’s report has finally been released for Mia Amber, the actress and model who died suddenly May 10 following routine knee surgery. Pulmonary thrombo-embolism. That’s the ruling. The bigger question: was this a preventable event? And that’s where it gets sticky. The hospital is crying unforseeable event. The coroner refuses to bite the had that feeds him. And the family only knows that this healthy 30-year old with no history of clotting issues went in for same-day surgery to correct an old softball injury and died less than 48  hours later. HuffPo has this story. Mia Amber becomes another statistic in the war on preventable medical harm.
