    Dying Patient Was Refused A Glass Of Water

    A dying patient had to ring a hospital switchboard on his mobile to ask for a glass of water, after nurses ignored his pleas.
    Officials from the South London NHS Trust have apologised to the family of Derek Sauter, who later died in hospital of pneumonia.
    The 60-year-old did not receive a "proper and professional standard of care" when he was admitted with a chest infection in June 2008.
    A formal investigation is being conducted into his death, after it was found his oxygen levels went unchecked for 11 hours and were 35% lower than recommended.
    Ruth Sauter, the patient's daughter, said she was disgusted by the treatment her father had received.

    I think Sky news is the Brit organization Fox routinely refers to as their sister station. If that's true, then to all the crazy lefty clowns in here, no, it's not real news.
