2,162 deaths caused in care due to malnutrition and dehydration since 2003
The Office for National Statistics have revealed that over 2,000 people have died due to dehydration or malnutrition when in care homes or hospitals during the last 10 years.
The figures show the underlying explanation for expiration in 2,162 recorded cases since 2003 was caused by either dehydration or malnutrition. These figures don’t even include this year’s death rate.
Dr Alison Cook, an executive at the Alzheimer's Society, told the Daily Telegraph that campaigners said the figures were a complete shame. By what method would we be able to call ourselves civilised when individuals are left to starve or pass on of thirst?
It is an utter disrespect that they are ever left without the most essential forethought. The figures were made open taking after a Freedom of Information ask for by the daily paper.
After David Cameron became the PM in 2010 the death rates have increased. A total of 223 individuals died every 12-months during the last seven years as an after-effect of dehydration or malnutrition in a forethought home or doctor's facility. From 2010 to 2012, that figure dropped to over 200 per year.
