Safeguarding Adults Review- Mr G (May 2021)
Mr G was 62 and had lived alone in a first-floor council flat with no lift. Mr G was a wheelchair user and suffered from severe epilepsy following a brain injury. He was supported at home by his sisters, although neither lived locally and he had a package of home care. Mr G sometimes refused the daily home care, which he was offered from 2 different Home Care Providers and at times he was unable to allow carers access into his property. Mr G was found by his sister at home appearing to be barely conscious after a seizure. She called an ambulance and Mr G was admitted to hospital, where he was found to be suffering from pneumonia amongst other signs of possible neglect at home.Mr G sadly died within 5 days of being admitted to hospital.
