A nursing home manager who failed properly to feed a former soldier who later died in an "appalling" catalogue of neglect has been jailed for 6 months

Nursing home chief jailed over patient's death

Extract from the Telegraph:

"Kathleen Vitturini was supposed to be in charge of caring for Peter Giles, but instead she allowed the 57-year-old Parkinson's disease sufferer to lose two stone in just 10 days.

Mr Giles, who also had mental health problems, suffered a "rapid deterioration" and died from pneumonia and septicaemia contracted during his stay at the Abbeycroft Care Home in Bispham, Lancashire.

Vitturini, who ran the home, was arrested when a coroner who examined Mr Giles was so concerned about his appearance that he contacted police."
