STAFFORD HOSPITAL 'PRAISED FOR PIONEERING UNASSISTED SUICIDES'
Managers at the Mid Staffordshire NHS Trust have been praised and ‘remunerated accordingly’ for their pioneering work in unassisted suicide techniques over the past few years.
In a patient care routine known as “ignoring and humiliating,” managers ensured that costs were cut and all government targets were met, whilst patient waiting lists were kept low through increasing death rates. Nursing techniques included not washing patients for weeks, not providing them with food or drink and not assisting them to the lavatory.
Other practices involved getting relatives to wash soiled sheets at home, ignoring infections and falls, and dead bodies on the wards.
