Pryers acted on behalf a lady, who brought a claim for her deceased husband, Shane, relating to a fall he had in hospital. He was admitted to hospital on 13th August 2014 with a suspected Gastrointestinal bleed. Shane had a history of pancreatitis, artrial fibrillation, diabetes and cataracts. He also had a history of multiple falls following a brain-stem stroke two and a half years prior to the incident.

A falls risk assessment, nursing risk assessment were not completed and multi-disciplinary assessment was incomplete.

On 14th August 2014 Shane suffered a fall whilst left unsupervised in a toilet and sustained a displaced intracapsular hip fracture.  Shane underwent surgery following which he suffered an infection.

Shane suffered a further fall on 19th September 2014 after nursing staff failed to raise the cot sides on his hospital bed.  He was unable to return home and was discharged to a nursing home.  Shane’s mobility didn’t improve and he passed away on 14th April 2015.

The Defendant admitted fault and they made a Part 36 offer (meaning that the case did not have to go to court) of £35,000 which was accepted.
