    The private laboratory that is under investigation for potentially issuing more than 40,000 false negative Covid tests was not fully accredited to perform the work, contrary to assurances made by health officials. The UK’s independent accreditation service, Ukas, told the Guardian on Monday that neither Immensa Health Clinics Ltd nor its sister company, Dante Labs, had ever been accredited by the service, and that it had informed the Department of Health that statements suggesting otherwise were incorrect. The UK Health Security Agency announced on Friday that it was suspending opera

    The trust at the centre of a maternity scandal does not have enough midwifery staff to keep women and babies safe, a Care Quality Commission (CQC)inspection has revealed. East Kent Hospitals University Foundation Trust relied on community midwives to fill slots at its acute unit, with some of them working 20-hour days after being called in to help cover and feeling outside of their competence. The trust had suspended a midwife-led unit and diverted women in labour to other hospitals – and when the CQC raised the understaffing issue at its inspection in July, it suspended its home bir

    Structured judgement review blends opinion-based review methods with a standard format that involves staff: making safety and quality judgements over phases of care making explicit written comments about care scoring care in each phase. This provides a rich set of information about each case in a form that can also be aggregated to produce knowledge about clinical services and systems of care. The purpose of the review process is not to point to individuals, but to ask questions about the system in which people work, both when care goes well and when it is unsati

    A public inquiry into allegations of abuse of patients at Muckamore Abbey Hospital is under way. The hospital is run by the Belfast Health Trust and provides facilities for adults with special needs. With the terms of reference agreed, the inquiry panel will begin trying to establish what happened between residents and some members of staff, and also examine management's role. Seven people are facing prosecution. There have been more than 20 arrests. It was announced in June 2021 that the inquiry will be chaired by Tom Kark QC, who played a key role in the 2010 inquiry into

    An inquest into the death of a London bus driver at London’s Nightingale Hospital during the first wave of coronavirus has heard evidence about equipment mistakes which may have harmed patients. Kishorkumar Patel, aged 58, was one of the first patients to be admitted to the field hospital at London’s Excel Conference Centre in April last year. An inquest at East London Coroner’s Court was told doctors and nurses were forced to work “leanly” because of limited staff and ventilators to help patients breathe. Mr Patel is one of 10 patients who had the wrong filter used on the venti

    A third of stillbirths at two south Wales hospitals could have been prevented with better care or treatment, an investigation has concluded. It emerged two years ago that more than 60 women suffered the heartbreak of a stillbirth at at the Royal Glamorgan, Llantrisant, and Prince Charles Hospital, Merthyr Tydfil, and that many of these were never reported or investigated. An independent panel set up by the Welsh Government to oversee improvements in these maternity units has now concluded that many of these babies could have been saved. It looked at whether the care provided to

    Summary of findings 63 episodes of care were clinically reviewed in this phase of the programme; the independent clinical review teams concluded that in a third of those episodes, different treatment or care may have resulted in a different outcome; there were four recurrent themes which emerged from the reviews - failure to listen to women, failure to identify and escalate risk, inadequate clinical leadership and inappropriate treatment leading to adverse outcomes; although these findings are concerning and distressing for the women and families involved, they are no

    The US Institute for Safe Medication Practices (ISMP) has expressed its shock that the Tennessee (TN) Board of Nursing has recently revoked RaDonda Vaught’s professional nursing license indefinitely, fining her $3,000, and stipulating that she pay up to $60,000 in prosecution costs. RaDonda was involved in a fatal medication error after entering “ve” in an automated dispensing cabinet (ADC) search field, accidentally removing a vial of vecuronium instead of VERSED (midazolam) from the cabinet via override, and unknowingly administering the neuromuscular blocking agent to the patient.

    NHS Highland says it expects to pay £3.4m in settlements to current and former staff who have complained of bullying. Whistleblowers exposed a "culture of bullying" at NHS Highland in 2018. A Scottish government-commissioned review suggested hundreds of health workers may have experienced inappropriate behaviour. So far 150 cases have been settled since the start of a "healing process", costing the health board more than £2m. Whistleblower Brian Devlin told BBC Scotland the scale of settlements made so far was "heartening", but he added that he continued to have concerns about

    The co-founder of a coronavirus bereaved families group has said he hopes Boris Johnson will "at long last... take us seriously" when he meets them at Number 10 today. Matt Fowler said it is vital the prime minister understand the need to start a public inquiry as soon as possible. Mr Johnson will meet members of the Covid-19 Bereaved Families for Justice group today - more than a year after promising to meet people whose loved ones had died. They will share how their family members caught the disease and died, and repeat calls for a public inquiry to get priority. The grou

    The backlog of serious clinical incidents that need investigating is building up throughout the NHS, due to the impact of coronavirus and emergency service pressures. Concerns have been raised by commissioners in some areas over the delays. Meanwhile, patients and families who have been harmed are waiting longer to see their cases resolved and the organisations involved are not learning the lessons taught by care failures as quickly as they should. Staff redeployment or absences due to COVID-19 are among the reasons why many investigations are being delayed. As result, trusts are at

    Police have launched a criminal investigation into a number of deaths at a Glasgow hospital, including that of 10-year-old Milly Main. It comes as a separate public inquiry into the building of several Scottish hospitals is being held. Milly's mother recently told the inquiry her child's death was "murder". A review in May found an infection which contributed to Milly's death was probably caused by the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital environment. The Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service has now instructed police to investigate the deaths of Milly, two

    Over the last five years, teams at Spectrum Health Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital in Grand Rapids, Michigan, had completed at least four different improvement projects focused on increasing adherence to the independent double check (IDC) process. An IDC is when two registered nurses independently check a medication to ensure it is correct prior to administering it to the patient. Like other institutions, the hospital did not require this process for all medications but did require it for a select group of medications considered higher risk if given in incorrect doses, routes or times.

    A patient died from a serious spinal injury after emergency staff incorrectly attributed his physical condition to his mental health issues, an inquest heard. Robert Walaszkowski, who had been detained at a secure mental health unit run by North East London Foundation Trust in October 2019, suffered a serious injury after running into a door on the unit. Staff from London Ambulance Service did not suspect a spinal injury and he was taken to the emergency department at Queen’s Hospital in Romford with a suspected head injury. An inquest heard he did not receive a spinal examination an
