On 15 July 2017, Ms Martin admitted to Greenville Public Hospital with Conplaints of angina and diagnosed with coronary artery disease. Post-operatively, able to tolerate fluids and light diet. Although, bruising at catheter insertion was present, no signs of infection or bleeding were noticed. Therefore, feels anxious to return home and finds difficult to cope with the current situation.
