She developed septicemia and subsequently died of an e.coli infection.
It sounds to me as if it was a case of "women have to suffer", and she was left to get on with it. A prompt abortion might indeed have saved her, but in a hospital with backward notions of women and suffering, inadequate asepsis and monitoring, it might not.
That she was left to get on with it, and was not adequately monitored, seem imo to be true in either case.
I think the original diary said they did various tests at some point. May have been too late.
Once septicemia has taken hold and the whole organism is involved, stopping it can be extremely hard or impossible, as I know from two deaths close to me.
