Giuseppe Ulleri inquest: Simon Cridland acts for the family

8th April 2019

A 61 year old man was admitted to the Manchester Royal Infirmary with a hip, wrist and neck fracture he was subsequently marked nil by mouth, as a result of being at risk of aspiration, but was not provided with nutritional support for 19 days.

The jury also found additional failure in his care in failing to change his antibiotic regimen to one more effective and in ensuring he was nursed at 45 degrees rather than lying flat.  He died of aspiration pneumonia contributed to by the lack of food for 19 days.

The conclusion was that his death was contributed to by neglect.

Simon was instructed by Nina Ali of Hodge Jones & Allen.
