The inquest was told that Nicola was taken to Trelisk Hospital in Cornwall on 1 November last year after swallowing about 25 paracetamol tablets following a row with her boyfriend. A blood test showed that the level of paracetamol in her body was below the required amount to be given an antidote. She was given a mixture to absorb the drug and sent home.
She was taken back to hospital when she became ill again two days later, and transferred to King's College Hospital, London, for a liver transplant but died on 11 November.
The inquest continues.Reuse content
