War veteran dies after beating in NHS hospital
Nick CollinsA war veteran has died after being violently beaten by a dementia patient armed with a bottle at an NHS hospital.
Richard Bowman, 86, was found curled up in a pool of blood with major injuries to his head, leg and arm after the incident at West Suffolk Hospital and died 12 days later, on Saturday.
His family described his care as a “national disgrace”, claiming staff should never have allowed him to be left alone with the patient who is also believed to have bipolar disorder.
