What a terribly sad case and what a disturbing statistic - only 272 unexplained deaths out of 722 were properly investigated.
That is a lot of families who have never had proper answers to what happened to their loved ones.
An NHS trust has admitted guilt over the death of a teenaged patient who drowned in the bath while in its care. Southern Health Trust pleaded guilty at Banbury Magistrates' Court earlier to breaching health and safety law in the case of Connor Sparrowhawk, 18, who died at Slade House in Oxford in 2013. His death led to the discovery the trust only properly investigated 272 unexplained deaths of 722 in its care. Sentencing is due to take place on 12 October at Oxford Crown Court. The trust was prosecuted by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) under Section 3 of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 following its investigation into the death of a patient under its care.
