Clearly a number of checks and balances were not followed. I would be breathing fire if this happened to my mum, however lets not forget todays NHS sees and treats considerably more people with considerably less resources and a constant pressure to discharge often with minimal planning and that makes what should be a risk aware service very less risk aware in all the wrong places. Quality care not volume or quantity qoutas!

kindatellsyou something about the ward staff, as well as the ambulance crew. You really do wonder how she wasnt missed until morning.
