Patient Left Dead in Corridor Until Sanitation Can Come Take Him Away for Disposal.

'He went to them for help and they left him out in the corridor to die', says 's daughter.


Senior nurse claims it was 'the appropriate method of handling the situation'



Two heartbroken parents have slammed 'inhumane' nurses who left their dead son lying in the middle of a hospital corridor and stepped over his corpse for more than ten hours thinking he was asleep.


CCTV captured staff pulling the lifeless body of Peter Thompson along the floor like they were 'dragging the body of a dead animal'.

Today a coroner said his death was 'wholly preventable' and believes he could have survived but for the neglect of nursing staff, three of whom now face disciplinary proceedings.

41-year-old Mr Thompson had taken a cocktail of drink and drugs but instead of taking him to accident and emergency, staff at the Edale House unit at the Manchester Royal Infirmary left him sprawled on the floor, where he eventually died.

The discovery of the footage has left his family devastated about the indignity of their son's death in April last year.

Mr Thompson's father Alan, 60, said: 'Seeing your own flesh and blood being dragged across the floor like a dead animal is heartbreaking.

'It was just inhumane what they did to our Peter and I just cannot understand how in this day and age this can be allowed to happen on a hospital corridor in the 21st Century.

'I can never ever forgive these people for what little they did - no matter what.'

Mother Rene, 59, said: 'I wish the staff had phoned us to say he was at the hospital. We'd have been down there and at least we'd have been there for him. He'd have had us there with him - we didn't even have a chance to say goodbye to him.'

Mr Thompson's daughter Carly, 23, said: 'I just didn't realise the extent of the neglect they had shown to my dad until this week.

'He went to them for help and they left him out in the corridor to die cold, wet and lonely with nothing. I'm disgusted at their treatment of him.'

The incident occurred between April 3 and 4 last year after Mr Thompson, a voluntary in-patient with alcohol and drug problems, was stopped from entering his ward after he turned up with a bottle of vodka and refused to surrender it.

He then fell asleep in the corridor at around 8.10pm after nurses decided to let him 'sleep off' the effects of the alcohol.

But rather than wake him up or move him, a member of staff just placed a towel next to the patient and he was not given a blanket or a pillow.


TL;DR: His name was Peter Thompson. He was treated like less than a piece of dog shit. NHS is so awesome; I wish we had it, too.

Read this earlier

And it's not the nhs that sucks. It's the staff that gets employed that sucks. Half of them don't even speak proper English.

He should have had security take his bottle and escort him to his room or they should have called his family to come get him. Either way, maybe then someone would have realized the dude was in distress and gotten him proper help.

I hope those nurses lose their license and the hospital gets in a ton of trouble so they can train their staff on protocols.

Sounds like burn out. They need to get a new line of work! Too bad there are patients suffering because of it.

^Yeah. The other day I read that patients had to be prescribed water in order to stop suffering from dehydration.

people dont give a fuck, to them it's just about grinding through the hours to get paid, just as if they worked at any old job.
