HOSPITAL records were altered after former Gladstone woman Emma Green's unborn baby died when she was turned away from Rockhampton Hospital, it has been reported.
The Courier Mail reports that hospital records obtained by Ms Green's family show staff wrote that Ms Green had taken the news well after an appointment at the hospital was cancelled.
However, an email sent from Emerald Hospital to Rockhampton Hospital contradicted this, with Ms Green's partner Eldean Blake calling Gladstone Hospital asking it to admit his partner, who was 40 weeks pregnant.
A report prepared for Queensland Health by Dr Andrew Pesce found Ms Green's care had been deficient.
Ms Green had been due to give birth on May 6, 2013, but went into labour four days later.
She attended Rockhampton hospital several times but was told it was still too early to be admitted or induced.
Family members alleged hospital staff confirmed Emma's baby had died in the womb - but still told her to come back the next day.
Emma's aunt Sue Bishop last year said her niece had never wanted to give birth in Rockhampton.
"She wanted to have her baby in the Gladstone Hospital but told she was over the BMI limit," Ms Bishop said.
"This is a perfectly healthy baby that has been let down by human incompetence."
Ms Bishop said her niece had known something was wrong.
"She wanted a caesarean or to be induced but she was told by staff they don't induce on weekends.
"Even after the baby had died, they told her they didn't have a bed for her."
