An inquest has heard that after Kane Gorny was denied vital hydrocortisone medication he became increasingly agitated as this medication was needed by him to retain his fluids.
The coroner Shirley Radcliffe delivered a damning assessment of the way he was taken care of at St George’s Hospital in Tooting, south London, and he accused the medical and nursing staff for doing something that ultimately took his life away.
There were many shortcomings on the hospital’s part and these were not monitoring Kane’s fluid as he had got operated and not timely administering essential medication and a lack of understanding by doctors of his medical condition.
The 22-year-old Waitrose worker from Balham, south London, was suffering from diabetes insipidus but surprisingly this was not known to a majority of people at the hospital who looked after him.
He had got weak bones following steroids that he had received following a tumour and radiotherapy too. This made him go in for a hip replacement surgery but it was seen that after he got operated upon, he was not given timely medication by hospital staff, Westminster coroner’s court heard.
