Charity Workers Chat with Dead Woman, Then Leave
Thu Nov 14, 8:22 AM ET

LONDON (Reuters) - Two British mental health workers visited a woman patient, chatted with her, and then left without realizing she was dead, newspapers said on Thursday.

An inquest heard the workers from the mental health charity Mind let themselves into the home of paranoid schizophrenic Patricia Harris and found her sitting in the kitchen with the curtains drawn and her back to them. After saying hello, they tried talking to Harris, 43, but when she failed to respond they left, the Daily Mail reported. "She didn't seem to want us there," health worker Helen Redmond was quoted as saying.


The next day, two other health workers on a follow-up visit discovered she was dead.


Do you think that the mental health workers possibly need to go back for a refresher course in Communications!

Very strange.

Have you heard how she died? It seems that there would have been some tale-tell sign.

Nothing was indicated in the article. I would have to assume that it was a naturally caused death!

Wasn't it in Florida where they discovered that many recorded social services visits never really took place? It seems like I read that after that little girl was reported missing and it turns out that she'd been gone for over a year.

I'll bet that happens everywhere - and probably in this case as well.

At least Florida had the never to look into the problem and admit that there was a problem. I would imagine that stuff like this gets swept under the rug most of the time.

"Hi, how are you today?"
"Okay, but I'm a little peckish. I think I've lost a bit of weight."
"You should put some meat on those bones."
