Abstract

Mrs V died in a general hospital in December 2008 at the age of 80. She had dementia and was subject to a compulsory treatment order (CTO) at the time. MWCS was extremely concerned about the amount, frequency and route of administration of medication and about the reasons for it being given and investigated further to determine the reasons for this.
