When the called nurse arrived at the accommodation 30 minutes later, the patient was sitting alone on the edge of his bed, still with chest pain and rapid breathing. At the same time, four assistant nurses and care assistants, three of whom were on duty, sat and had coffee. This according to Lex Sarah’s report.
