Body lies in busy A&E due to staff cuts

THE BODY of a patient lay on a trolley in the accident and emergency department of Oban’s Lorn and Islands Hospital for 11 hours as there was no night porter to take it to the mortuary.

Staff are now demanding arrangements are put in place by hospital management to have someone on call in the evening and during the night so a similar situation does not arise again. It is understood the body was left in a room in A&E, causing distress to staff who were on duty, until the porter collected it in the morning.
