Disabled woman judged ‘not worth saving’: Charity claims hospital doctors let her die after she developed pneumonia

FROM CHRIS SPIVEY’S BLOG – sent by David Turnbull

COMMENT by Road Hog  

I do not like Cameron, but I find the image of him in a Nazi uniform distasteful.

It smacks of typical Lefty propaganda and I don’t know why Cameron is pictured, because it has bugger all to do with him.

Far more people died under NuLabour, so why haven’t we got a picture of Blair, Brown or their health minister?

TAP –  It’s a good spoof of Cameron’s pre-election advertising.  Cameron’s silence in the face of hospitals becoming abattoirs is the point.  He supports the depopulation agenda.  Many people are entering hospital with relatively minor illnesses and are dying within days.  Hospitals have targets to meet, including the number of deaths required  by central government.

Anyone who has studied history will know that it has been blatantly obvious for the last 5 or 6 years, that this country has been following the blueprint for the rise of the Third Reich to the letter.
 Therefore, condemning the disabled to death is just another step closer to completion… Still. Enough trivialities. Did you see Corrienders last night. So true to real life, you could almost believe they aren’t actors.

  • Health ombudsman says doctors missed chances to save 23-year-old’s life
  • Mencap describes Tina Papalabropoulos‘s death as ‘an avoidable tragedy’
  • She suffered from learning disabilities, epilepsy and a form of dwarfism

Cared for: Tina Papalabropoulos, 23, suffered from learning disabilities, epilepsy, a form of dwarfism and a severe curvature of the spineCared for: Tina Papalabropoulos, 23, suffered from learning disabilities, epilepsy, a form of dwarfism and a severe curvature of the spine

A disabled woman died in hospital because doctors believed her life ‘was not worth saving’, a charity claimed yesterday.
Tina Papalabropoulos, 23, developed pneumonia days after suffering a bad cough.
In a highly critical report, the health ombudsman said doctors missed chances to save her life. Mencap called the death ‘an avoidable tragedy’.
Miss Papalabropoulos suffered from learning disabilities, epilepsy, a form of dwarfism and a severe curvature of the spine and was cared for by her parents.
In January 2009 she developed a cough and a GP visited her home in Wickford, Essex, and told her parents to give her antibiotics.
A request for a second visit the next day was ignored, although the GP did telephone the family, and the GP’s out-of-hours service refused a home visit until more than 24 hours later.
Miss Papalabropoulos was eventually admitted to Basildon Hospital but then had to wait four days before she was seen by a respiratory consultant.
The trust was criticised for a ‘prolonged delay’ in her treatment including failing to administer antibiotics immediately and not moving her to a high dependency unit.
Her parents said they were initially told she had a minor infection but claimed a ‘do not resuscitate’ sign was put on her bed two hours after she was admitted.
Doctors said they would not attempt to revive her as it would break her ribs, and one senior consultant allegedly told her parents they should not be afraid of the word ‘die’, before repeating: ‘Die, die, die.’

Doctors also allowed Mrs Papalabropoulos, 56, and her husband Christo, 57, to give their daughter food and drink, when she should have been fed intravenously to stop fluid getting into her lungs.
She died five days after she was admitted to hospital. Her mother said: ‘There was a complete lack of compassion from everyone. There were basic hospital treatments that she was denied because she was a disabled person.
‘Tina was an angel. She couldn’t talk or walk but she was able to communicate with us. If they had done their best then I could have accepted the way she died. But they didn’t.’

The health ombudsman’s report said: ‘We found that doctors had missed any opportunity there might have been –however small – to save her life by providing earlier and more intensive treatment for her.’
The ombudsman partly upheld Mr and Mrs Papalabropoulos’ complaints about Basildon and Thurrock University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and South East Essex Emergency Doctors Service, the GPs’ out-of-hours service but said it was impossible to know if she would have survived if she had received better treatment.

‘Doctors held the view that Tina’s life was not worth saving, due to her disability’
Beverley Dawkins, Mencap

Mencap policy manager Beverley Dawkins said: ‘Doctors held the view that Tina’s life was not worth saving, due to her disability.’
A spokesman for Basildon NHS trust said: ‘Since then [2009] the hospital has made significant improvement to the care and treatment we provide our patients with learning disabilities and we continue to listen to our patients, the families and carers to find out what further enhancements can be made.’

    I like your photoshop of Cameron.

    Easy target though

    I bet you wouldn’t dare do one about all of the Jewish bankers that run thing like King, Bernanke, Carney, Dimon, Blankfein and Trichet? and of course not forgetting the leader of the Labour party.

    Would you? No I thought not.

    They might be Jewish… but they are more Zionist.

    A lot of Jews hate Zionists, believe it or not:

    Jews, like every other religion, have been played-off for years by Zionists.

    Seriously…you people are more offended by David Cameron dressed as a Nazi than the fact our country is practicing eugenics? Wow….you really are bit late in the day.

    ”No wonder your blog is in the top 40 with Bolshevik Jew Marxist propaganda like the above post haven’t got a fucking clue.”

    Funny… most people who buy the ”Bolshevik Jew Marxist propaganda” called ‘newspapers’, you so eloquently put, don’t ” haven’t got a fucking clue either.

    Would explain the uprise in alternative media/blogs, and the general public distrust in mainstream media due years of being spoon-fed propaganda.

    Keep up the good work Tap.
