4. One interesting point in a related story

http://www.irishtimes.com/news/health/hse-apologises-to-husband-for-care-it-gave-to-savita-1.1347025

The Health Service Executive has apologised for the care it gave to Savita Halappanavar and the events at Galway University Hospital that contributed to her death.

In a letter to her husband, Praveen Halappanavar, Tony Canavan, chief operating officer of the Galway Roscommon Hospital Group, extends his condolences and says: “I also wish to apologise sincerely to you and to Savita’s family for the events related to her care that contributed to her tragic, unexpected and untimely death.”


An actual apology, though they still used the phrase "contributed to" as opposed to more accurate "caused". But this is something you would NEVER see from a U.S. hospital.
