Staff Carelessness Leads To Patient’s Death at Care home (UK)

It has been recently revealed in a report that there has been the death of an elderly patient living in a care home. This is since she was left unaided and alone, because apparently, the nurse was praying and didn’t want to leave it in the middle and look up to the needs of the patient.

The name of the patient is Dorothy Griffiths and she is 87 years old. The name of the nurse preset as Abdul Bhutto, who is a Muslim by religion. When the patient fell off her bed and onto the ground, another carer rushed to aid and asked Bhutto to give him a handing helping her up, but Bhutto said that he needed to complete his prayer first, and only then he could come and help the patient in need.
In the meanwhile the patient suffered multiple injuries, and succumbed in the hospital later.
“It took between five and ten minutes because he was praying upstairs in the office on his prayer mat. A staff member told me we had to wait for him to finish”, said Carer Zoe Shaw, at the court hearing.
Mrs. Griffiths was suffering from Alzheimer’s and was at a vulnerable position. There wasn’t enough attention aid to her needs and this is the reason for the deal and her sudden death. It is essential that more efforts are made for safeguarding the rights of the elderly, especially at care homes, because they can’t fight for their own rights. This is yet another case of the death of a patient due to the carelessness of the staff. There is need for efforts to be made to avert such things from happening in the future as well.
