Corpse left on ward for seven hours14th August 2008
The body of a patient was left alongside other patients in a Glasgow hospital for seven hours before being removed from a ward.
The incident happened at Stobhill hospital in June after NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde agreed to leave the dead body until a relative arrived. However, there then emerged a further delay in the removal afterwards. The trust has apologised for the upset the incident had caused, meanwhile the Royal College of Nursing said the case highlighted its campaign for all patients to be given more dignity.
