A ten-year-old girl died after a catalogue of blunders at Basildon Hospital, an inquest found.The usual catalogue of blunders we’ve come to expect from the public sector, actually. Timid, uncaring staff, confused procedures not disseminated correctly, rigid ‘it’s not my job’ attitudes and, oh yes, one extra special little fillip in this case:
A lack of senior nursing staff, no senior doctors were ever at the ward after 5pm and the on call locum consultant Dr Mohamed Ramadan chose to stay at home when contacted.How nice! Still, at least he’ll get hauled over the coals by …
On call consultant Dr Ramadan no longer works for the trust and is based in Libya, so did not give evidence.Find someone in Basildon Hospital to take his punishment in his stead, then. Preferably the person who hired him.
