Symptoms of heart failure

If you go into hospital with symptoms of heart failure and your sent home with no test is this right ? My mother went to hospital yesturday for a routine tests on her heart, anyway she went to hospital with wheezing, difficult to wake up, low blood pressure , the doctors couldnt wake her but she was sent to the car in a wheelchair plus she was dribbling blood. Now i would of thought she should of been admitted and put on a ECG machine which would of found her enlarged heart resulting in savin her life. As my mother died yesturday from enlarged heart. But she does have something wrong with her left ventricle plus she has TTP ( blood disorder ) i apologise but i am mad they should of done some tests on my mum instead of sending her home then she died the same day in bed she was having heart failure while she was at hospital why couldnt the doctors pick it up.

I think she should have been admitted or observed for 24 Hours. Definitely she requires blood work/ other labs. Pathetic, simply pathetic. Sorry to hear about irreplaceable loss.
