Failing kidneys and Doxycycl hyc100 mg

My mother was in the ER and was given this for infection and sent home.  She had acute bronchitis and a UTI.  She took three doses.  She also had a range of other thins wrong with her one of which was lose of about 75% of her kidneys.  The next day she went back to the ER and was admitted to CCU.  She was severely dehydrated and her kidneys weren't filtering any at all.  Could this drug have caused her Kidneys to fail like that?  She also had pulmonary fibrosis, pace maker defibrillator, diabetes, fibromyalgia and the failing kidney.  She passed away 8 days later.
