Dr Foster Hospital Guide alleges 5,024 NHS patients died despite 'low-risk' conditions

"A damning report on hospitals claims some are so sub-standard that 5,024 patients have died despite being admitted with low-risk conditions.The annual Dr Foster Hospital Guide also names 12 hospital trusts that it claims are guilty of shocking lapses in basic safety measures.

Incredibly, nine of them were rated "good" or "excellent" last month by healthcare regulator the Care Quality Commission.

Safety issues highlighted by Dr Foster include swabs and drill bits left inside patients after surgery in more than 200 cases.
Surgeons operated on the wrong part of a body at least 82 times".

Hospital Shame: 12 Trusts 'Underperforming'

"The health regulator says it sees no need for action despite a new report which says 12 NHS trusts in England are significantly underperforming.
A study by NHS partner Dr Foster Intelligence, which collates and analyses healthcare data, also highlights 27 trusts with unusually high patient death rates".

"The Tories said the inspection regime had failed.
Describing it as no longer "fit for purpose", shadow health secretary Andrew Lansley said: "We need to overhaul Labour's failed health inspection regime which is more interested in tick box targets than patients.

The Dr Foster research uncovered widespread safety issues including 39% of trusts "failing to investigate unexpected deaths or cases of serious harm on their wards".Items such as swabs and drill bits were left inside patients after surgery in at least 209 cases and surgeons operated on the wrong part of a body at least 82 times".

The head of the Care Quality Commission, Baroness Young. should resign immediately.

Or better still just sack the lot of them.

National Horror Story

A STAGGERING 3,145 patients died needlessly in a year at 26 NHS hospital trusts, it was revealed yesterday.
All the trusts but one had been rated by an official Government watchdog as "fair", "good" or even "excellent".
Inspectors swooped unannounced on the wards of Basildon University Hospital after seeing its shock figure for 2007/2008.
Their discovery of filthy, blood-stained and soiled beds and equipment provoked outrage - and came weeks after the trust's care standards were rated as "good".

It prompted a crisis in confidence in the Care Quality Commission, the watchdog that replaced the Healthcare Commission and gave the Basildon and Thurrock University Hospitals Trust its rating.
