28 March 2019 – Stamford Mercury

An inquest jury found that a number of shortfalls at a Bourne care home led to a pensioner choking to death on a sandwich.

The jury foreman at the inquest of Joan George, 73, who died on 28.09.2016 at Abbey Court Care Home said there were “inadequacies of training, inadequacies of record keeping” and that general practices and procedures were “not robust enough“.

The narrative verdict was delivered at the end of the three-day inquest at the Cathedral Centre in Lincoln, led by Marianne Johnson, assistant corner for Lincolnshire.
