But some things do still stand out in their capacity to reveal the breathtaking contempt in which the state systems hold their ‘customers’:
Following his death, a nurse allegedly inquired whether the family, from Balham, South-West London, was 'finished' and asked a matron in front of them whether she could 'bag him up'.*speechless*
Miss Cronin said: 'The main doctor came out and you could tell he was really angry. He said: “You need to go and see your son. He's dying.”
The couple then found their son lying in blood and fluid-soaked sheets and a nurse came in and asked them to help her to change them.This was the same nurse who asked if she could ‘bag up’ the body in front of the grieving relatives. And, once again, even while this PR disaster is unfolding around them, their thoughts are only of themselves:
Nurses at the hospital were said to have been offered counselling as a result of Mr Gorny's death.Would it even work? I mean, on people so utterly devoid of normal human compassion?
The inquest continues. The case is still being considered by the Crown Prosecution Service.I hope that’s because they are waiting until the inquest finishes, and not because there’s really a doubt in their minds that they need to take action.
