Man, 85, ‘died after nine-hour A&E wait’ at Northampton General

26 February 2020 – BBC News

An 85-year-old man died he waited for nine hours in A&E along with “several lapses and omissions” in the way he was monitored, an inquest has heard.

Mohan Acharya died from pneumonia and acute renal failure at Northampton General Hospital on 08.03.2018.

Emergency medicine consultant Dr Mike Pearce said the hospital “should have done more observations” but that the failings were “unlikely to have directly contributed” to Mr Acharya’s death.

Dr Pearce headed an investigation on behalf of the hospital, and apologised to Mr Acharya’s family.
