Nobody has been held to account for deaths at Stafford Hospital

Nobody has been held to account for deaths at Stafford Hospital Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt has condemned the fact that nobody had been “brought to book” in cases related to the deaths of patients at Stafford Hospital.

In a recent interview, Mr. Hunt stressed that the deaths of patients at Stafford Hospital should be probed by the police.

Speaking on the topic, he said, “I think it is absolutely disgraceful with all those things happening, whether it is doctors, nurses or managers, nobody has been held to account.”

Staffordshire Police is currently studying the full contents of the report into system failure at the hospital. Previous investigations into two cases at the Stafford hospital found no evidence to bring prosecutions.

The findings of a year-long probe, which was launched after more than expected number of deaths at the hospital between 2005 and 2008, were published on Wednesday.

Helene Donnelly, who worked as a staff nurse at Stafford Hospital, had raised concerns regarding patient care as many as 100 times in six years. She said there had been a culture of disregard and neglect at the hospital.
