28/11/2022 07/12/2022 TAYLOR, Leighton Dale Leighton Dale TAYLOR died on 10 November 2021 at Royal Blackburn Hospital, Blackburn. Mr TAYLOR was diagnosed with psychosis in May 2021. He attended Royal Blackburn hospital on 1 November 2021 following a deterioration in his mental health. He was hearing voices telling him to kill himself and felt he could not keep himself safe if he was not in hospital. He was admitted to a mental health ward on 2 November 2021 and found suspended behind the door of his room by a ligature on 3 November 2021. Mr TAYLOR had deliberately taken steps to end his life with the intention of doing so. Following being found he received treatment in hospital but did not survive. Although the following factors were not causative of death, they possibly contributed to Mr TAYLOR's death: 1. Mr TAYLOR's mental health had declined following his admission to hospital but he had not been appropriately reassessed on the ward he was transferred to. 2. His risk of suicide was insufficiently evaluated which meant that he was not observed as frequently as he should have been. 3. There was also a delay in reaching Mr TAYLOR as he had suspended himself behind the door and it could not be opened immediately

03/01/2023 03/01/2023 BENTLEY, Luca Luca BENTLEY was born on the 13th June 2020 at the Burnley General Hospital. His mother had her labour induced due to concerns about Luca's growth. CTG monitoring displayed abnormal features from the outset from difficulties which may have been ongoing for some time. An independent investigation by HSIB concluded that Mrs BENTLEY's care did not reflect the urgency of the situation. Professionals did not act urgently enough or escalate care appropriately. Assessment criteria inappropriate to Mrs BENTLEY's stage of labour were used and physical transfers included delays. Had Mrs BENTLEY's care been different, Luca would have survived, and the care provided to Mrs BENTLEY is a direct causative factor in Luca's death on the 14th June 2020 at the Burnley General Hospital.

The necessity for tube feeding was a direct result of his traumatic brain injury from 1991.

16/01/2023 16/01/2023 TAYLOR, Lawrence Dale Lawrence Dale TAYLOR died on the 4th September 2022 in woodland at Schleswig Way, Leyland. His mental health had deteriorated since April 2022 and notwithstanding significant support from his family, he died by hanging.

20/01/2023 20/01/2023 SANDERSON, Sarah Louise Sarah Louise SANDERSON died on the 13th August 2022 at her home address by hanging. Her mental health had deteriorated since June 2022 and she had been involved with a number of services including her GP, accident and emergency department, the home treatment team and mental health triage services. Mental health services relied upon Sarah's reports that she had no plans to die by suicide, and did not appropriately factor family concerns into the risk assessment process. Sarah's presentation in August 2022 merited in patient support which was not in place at the time she died and there was insufficient oversight to her needs. This contributed to her ability to take her own life by hanging on the 13th August 2022.

Over the following days, Ms TAYLOR deteriorated and died as a result of hospital acquired pneumonia caused by a fractured sternum caused by osteoporosis.

30/01/2023 30/01/2023 ROBINSON, Alan Edward  Alan Edward ROBINSON died on the 1st October 2022 at the Royal Lancaster Infirmary. He had fractured his neck of femur in February 2022 following a fall which required surgery. During a lengthy hospital stay, Mr ROBINSON's weight dropped with only mild regains in the following months. In the months after surgery, Mr ROBINSON developed significant pain and his mood deteriorated due to his lack of independence. Records as to Mr ROBINSON's pain levels do not reflect his actual significant pain and his care was not escalated until August 2022 when he was readmitted to hospital. Investigations revealed a deep infection within his operated hip and a further operation was needed. Mr ROBINSON deteriorated following this operation until his death on the 1st October 2022. His resilience to surviving the additional surgery was impacted by a number of factors including his age, mobility and weight loss.

13/02/2023 23/02/2023 TILLEY, Jodine Elizabeth Jodine Elizabeth TILLEY died on 10 May 2022 at Royal Lancaster Infirmary, Ashton Road, Lancaster in Lancashire. Ms TILLEY had a history of mental health issues including numerous threats of suicide and instances of self-harm. She was admitted to a mental health hospital informally after a further incident suggesting suicidal ideation. She was found suspended by a ligature behind the door of her room and taken to Royal Lancaster Infirmary where she did not recover despite treatment. Ms TILLEY deliberately suspended herself. She was in crisis at that time and probably took this step as as either a cry for help or as a way of helping her cope. This occurred in part because there was a gross failure to recognise the significance of the risks of self-harm and then not taking appropriate precautions to manage those risks, which amounted to neglect.

28/03/2023 28/03/2023 MCDONALD, Kevin John Kevin John MCDONALD died on the 24th September 2022 from Sepsis. He had attended his General Practitioner on the 20th September 2022 and was sent to the Burnley Urgent Care Department where an infection was identified and antibiotics commenced. He was transferred to Royal Blackburn Hospital for inpatient care and spent 23 hours in the Emergency Department awaiting a ward bed. In the course of his time in the Emergency Department observations of Mr MCDONALD did not take place in line with trust policies and there was an 18 hour delay in his receipt of further antibiotics. In addition, Mr MCDONALD did not receive steroid medication necessary for his underlying condition. The delay in antibiotics and missed steroids contributed to the speed of Mr MCDONALD's deterioration and his ability to fight off the overwhelming infection. It is not possible to determine whether Mr MCDONALD would have lived if his treatment had included timely antibiotics and steroids.

He had been diagnosed with multiple cancers in the summer on 2021 but that diagnosis had not been communicated to Mr RATCLIFFE and so he had been unable to seek treatment for his cancers. By September 2022, Mr RATCLIFFE's health had deteriorated sufficiently to necessitate hospital admission and he learned of his cancer diagnoses for the first time. No cancer treatments were possible at this time due to Mr RATCLIFFE's ill health caused by his cancer and other underlying conditions. Whilst in hospital, Mr RATCLIFFE contracted pneumonia which caused a further deterioration and his death. The progression of Mr RATCLIFFE's cancer contributed to his overall ill health and inability to overcome the pneumonia which infected him. It is not possible to determine whether he would have survived if he had been notified of his cancer diagnoses in a timely fashion.

17/04/2023 28/04/2023 RAMPLING, Carl Carl RAMPLING died on 29 April 2021 at Royal Blackburn Hospital, Blackburn. Mr RAMPLING had a long history of mental health issues. He was brought to hospital by the police after he was observed to be behaving strangely. He became volatile whilst awaiting treatment. He was restrained after lunging at a security guard who was endeavouring to de-escalate the situation. The restraint of Mr RAMPLING was reasonable, necessary and proportionate in order to prevent further harm. Mr RAMPLING became unresponsive and went into cardiorespiratory arrest. This was contributed to by the period of increased exertion and agitation caused by his own behaviour and resisting being restrained, together with several underlying health issues that made Mr RAMPLING more prone to cardiac issues. Despite lifesaving treatment over following weeks, he deteriorated and did not recover
