London – Eighteen families are reportedly planning to take legal action against two hospitals accused of providing poor health care to patients. As reported by BBC News, the families are accusing the Queen’s Hospital in Romford, Essex, and the Eastbourne District Hospital in East Sussex of breach of the Human Rights Act.
Emma Jones, a senior human rights lawyer with the legal firm Leigh, Day and Co., which represents each of the clients planning to bring forth the legal action, is quoted in the report as stating, “We are talking about people who’ve been left without hydration, who haven’t been given food, whose medication has been missed. There are many care issues and we’re talking about people that are often quite elderly, they are vulnerable.”
Claims have purportedly been submitted so far by four of the families.
