Charges were brought by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) against the Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust (now defunct) relating to the deaths of Patrick Daly, Edith Bourne, Ivy Bunn and Lillian Tucker.
The deaths occurred at a Stafford Hospital which was run by the Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust at the time of the deaths who died between October 2005 and May 2014. The Court heard how three of the deaths were as a result of falls which were preventable and another death was caused by a patient being given penicillin when the hospital were advised she had a severe allergic reaction to the antibiotic.
Prosecutors in the case argued that the Trust failed to ensure their Hospitals conducted proper risk assessments and identify preventative measures to prevent falls.
“Three of the individuals concerned arrived at hospital vulnerable to falls, had falls and suffered injuries from those falls, which are connected then to the loss of life.”
The death by accidentally giving penicillin to a patient who was allergic was as caused by poor record-keeping and management problems. Errors in administration and lack of safety checks to allergies led to medical staff giving a lethal dose of penicillin to a patient who then went into a coma and died.
According to the HSE’s report, the charges relate the deaths of:
Patrick Daly, aged 89, on 13 May 2014
Edith Bourne, aged 83, on 22 July 2013
Ivy Bunn, aged 90, on 6 November 2008
Lillian Tucker, aged, 77 on 21 October 2005
