    A woman has described how she spent more than six hours of her 100th birthday waiting in agony for an ambulance after slipping and fracturing her pelvis while getting ready for a family lunch. Irene Silsby was due to be picked up by her niece, Lynne Taylor, for a celebration to mark her centenary on 9 April. But she fell in the windowless bathroom of her care home in Greetham, Rutland, and staff called an ambulance at 9am after she managed to summon help. “All I remember is I was in terrible pain,” said Silsby from her hospital bed on Saturday. When asked of the ambulance delay, she

    United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust has been ordered to pay a total of £111,204 in fines and legal costs after pleading guilty to failing to provide safe care and treatment to an elderly patient, causing them avoidable harm, following a sentencing hearing on Friday, 25 March at Boston Magistrates’ Court. The case was taken by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) under regulations 12 and 22 of the Health and Social Care Act 2008 (Regulated Activities) Regulations 2014.

    In 2020-21, the number of people visiting the A&E department at the East Kent University Hospital Trust (EKHUFT), one of the largest trusts in the south east, increased by up to 25%. At that time, we noted a surge in cases of falls in A&E, particularly those resulting in severe harm. The risk factors were clear: A&E departments were busier than they had ever been The quality of health in patients seeking help at A&E was declining Those seeking help had longer-than-usual waiting times in A&E departments There was no clear way for staff to indic

    In this report, the Coroner states that she had been informed that the risk of mortality in the elderly who have suffered significant trauma is high, because they are at greater risk of developing pneumonia. She notes that it is therefore essential that they receive emergency medical care as soon as possible. She highlighted that in this case it took three hours for an ambulance to arrive, and whilst she had no evidence that this delay contributed to Mrs Young's death, she could not confirm that it did not. She stated that future lives could be at risk due to delays in providing a timely emerg

    In this report, the Coroner states his concerns as follows: Hospital staff told the inquest that due to the reduction in staff numbers, they did not have enough time to carry out their expected tasks. As one healthcare assistant told the court, it was “impossible” to provide one to one nursing care to Mr Housby with the number of staff working on that shift. The court was told that since Mr Housby’s death, the problem of staffing shortages persists. Clifton hospital is a place to where patients – often elderly and vulnerable – are transferred for a period of rehabilitation,

    A resident at an inadequate care home died after their blood glucose increased to high levels and staff acted too slowly, a report found. Inspectors said The Berkshire Care Home in Wokingham breached guidelines in nine areas and must improve. They found residents were put at risk after medicines were not used properly and that records were not up to date. The Care Quality Commission (CQC) said an ambulance was only called for the person who died when they were found to be unresponsive. They later died in hospital. Its report said staff were "not sufficiently skilled" to safely c
