CARE HOME STAFF ALLOWED BOY TO DIE BECAUSE OF HEALTH AND SAFETY FEARS

The family of a disabled boy who died in a tragic accident at a care home have received a four figure payout after an inquest heard carers allowed him to fall rather than restrain him because of 'health and safety' fears. James Dean Brotherhood, 18, had brain damage and was susceptible to blood clots following treatment for a brain tumour which was removed when he was eight. But despite his medical history, carers at a specialist unit stood by and watched as James pulled himself up onto a windowsill with his wheelchair still strapped to his back. Regardless of the obvious danger, they refused to budge for several minutes before James fell to the ground, receiving a fatal head injury.When asked by a coroner why he did not intervene in the moments before the tragedy, one of his carers wrongly stated the home had a 'no restraint policy' due to health and safety rules.
