Patient had to phone switchboard for water29th March 2010
An investigation into a patient's death at Queen Mary's Hospital in Kent has found that a patient close to death had to telephone the hospital switchboard to request water.
The nurse on duty then turned away the doctor who came to see the patient. The report found the patient would not have died if the nurse had not failed to monitor the patient's oxygen levels. A spokesman for Queen Mary's Hospital said: "The Trust would like to convey their sincerest apologies for the failings in care which have been revealed."
