Embittered Widow to Sue Hospital

Admitting her ‘ bitter’ feelings, a grieving widow has decided to take the hospital from which her late husband caught a fatal infection, to court. //

Great-grandmother Mavis Burton-Pye, 67, said she would speak to a lawyer about the circumstances that led to the death of her husband Leslie, 74, at the James Paget University Hospital in Gorleston, Norfolk.

Apparently, Mr Burton-Pye had gone to the hospital for a blood transfusion almost a month back, when all the while the hospital was suffering from an outbreak of the superbug, Clostridium difficile.

This Friday hospital managers announced that a vicious strain of C. difficile had caused or been a factor in the deaths of 17 patients since December.

Another five patients had undergone bowel surgery after being struck down by the bug and 11 more had been treated.

Says Mrs. Pye: “ I don't know why they didn't tell people before. It seems all wrong.

"Leslie was a diabetic. He went in for a blood transfusion about five weeks ago and picked this bug up while he was there. He died on Monday. I knew it was no ordinary bug he'd picked up. It was terrible. You can't imagine. The doctor wrote this funny word on the death certificate last week, which didn't mean anything to me.

"But I didn't know that people had been dying because of this bug since December until I saw it on the news on Friday. If we'd known when he went into hospital five weeks ago he wouldn't have gone in. He could have had more iron tablets or something." She added: "I'm going to see my solicitor to see what I can do. There must be something we can do. I feel really bitter about it."
