VULNERABLE patients with learning disabilities have died because of neglect in NHS hospitals, an official report is expected to say this week.THIS IS WHAT OBAMA THINKS WE SHOULD EMULATE. WHAT AN IDIOT.
The report by the parliamentary and health service ombudsman will find widespread failures by doctors and nurses to care properly for people who are mentally handicapped.
The inquiry began after a report by the charity Mencap, Death by Indifference, found six patients had died through neglect while in NHS care.
... A spokeswoman for the Department of Health said: “Preventable deaths of people with learning disabilities are absolutely unacceptable. We are now taking action that will lead to people with learning disabilities getting equal access to healthcare”.
