    Following the traumatic death of my daughter-in-law in 2016 I have got involved in various local and national initiatives to learn from deaths and improve patient safety, bringing the perspective of the family, and my professional expertise in developing and managing services and education and training.

    My much loved daughter-in-law, Mariana Pinto, died on 16 October 2016. She was 32. Her tragic and unexpected death raised many questions for us about standard practice by psychiatric services and about patient safety. The evening before she died, Mariana was taken by ambulance to her local A&E department, escorted by four police officers, and handcuffed for her own safety. She was psychotic – delusional, paranoid, violent and very distressed. She had attacked her husband (my son) who had visible bite marks, scratches and bruises. It was a first episode and totally out of character.
