As per reports, it has been revealed that an elderly person was sent home from Southern General Hospital in Glasgow in the freezing midnight at the time when he had undergone hip replacement surgery.
At the time when David Spelman, 85, was discharged from the hospital, he was just wearing a polo shirt, trouser, dressing gown over the top and one paper slipper on one foot. He was shivering at the time he reached at the door of the hospital.
He was discharged on February 24 and died on March 19. He was admitted in the hospital after he fell from the stairs and had to undergo the surgery. Later also, he slipped while checking his surgery wounds and lost his life.
The Scottish Public Sector Ombudsman said that they have asked the Greater Glasgow and Clyde Health Board to apologize the man's family. However, it can be said that the hospital is responsible for his death.
Spelman's son said that his father was having a formal jacket, a hat, a woolen pants and outdoor shoes in his suitcase. He would have been properly dressed, but the hospital authorities did not pay any attention to him.
"We accept the recommendations made in the report and would like to once again express our condolences to the family", said NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde.
