Spotlight on Royal Oldham Hospital

  • Posted on

Royal Oldham Hospital is under the spotlight again as a coroner has criticised staff at the hospital for failings in the care of a premature baby who died of sepsis in February 2016.

This is not the first time the hospital has come under scrutiny due to its purported lack of care and miscommunication between staff.

It was recently reported in the news about another incident where a girl age 6, namely Layla-Rose, died at Royal Oldham Hospital due to mis-diagnosed meningitis which led to sepsis. Again, this would appear to be as a result of lack of care and communication between hospital staff.
