Family receives compensation for hospital death

The family of a woman who died while in the care of staff at Alexandria Hospital in Redditch have received an undisclosed amount in compensation from Worcestershire Acute Hospitals Trust, reports the BBC.

Fifty-five year old Margaret Pitt had suffered from Type 1 diabetes for around 30 years. While she was in hospital, staff failed to take a blood sugar reading to monitor her glucose levels. She subsequently suffered a severe brain injury and died.

According to the BBC, the hospital trust apologised unreservedly for its “failures” in caring for Mrs Pitt, and said that improvements had been made to its clinical procedures and staff training to prevent similar errors from reoccurring.
