UK bugs and diagnosis issues still persist...along with lack of cleanliness...BD
A DYING man was sent home from hospital even though he had contracted the killer bug Clostridium difficile, his daughter has claimed. Angela Rees claims her father, Raymond Rees, of Ystrad Mynach, would still be alive today if it wasnt for poor hygiene at the University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff. She claims faeces smeared on door handles and blood-stained surgical gloves in a lift are just some of the examples she witnessed at the hospital.
Mrs Rees claims she had to badger nurses until her father was given medication on many occasions, despite him being in severe pain.
Mr Rees had his bowel removed, and the family were told he had only a 10 per cent chance of survival, but he managed to pull through.
It was at this time Mrs Rees says she was told by a doctor that her father had contracted the deadly bug, C.difficile.
