    I doubt the Daily Mail made it up - the mother of the guy has obviously told them about the situation - and dont forget theres nothing the Daily Mail hates more than people not of Middle England so for them to report this on a sympathetic note means they thought it was serious enough to override that usual dislike.

    Only just seen this, I think whilst the Daily Fail likes to sensationalise (don't all papers?) they haven't made this up, this happened not too far from where I live and was also reported in local papers and on the local news in the same regard. I think they have played a lot on his appearance and how he was judged by 1 person (ie when he was asked what drugs he'd taken) but the main issue is obviously that procedures put in place to make sure deaths like this don't happen were not followed and that's the main issue there. Utterly tragic.

    There's no particular people that the Mail like or dislike - they are a business. If a story sells papers they'll write it. A lot of stories may seem to be because they like a certain group of people but that's just what's the most money making "news" at the time. If I found a copy of the Daily Mail on the train and didn't have a sachet of salt to get pinches out of, I wouldn't read it.

    Surely one simple routine blood test would have confirmed that he was not on drugs and that he had swine flu? Even if he was doing drugs, junkies get sick a lot anyway and it's still discrimination not to treat someone because of that.

    It's a very sad case to be sure. However, I'm not joining the brigade attacking the nurses involved. Read some medical blogs sometime. You'll find a multitude of people, dedicated to their jobs, caring to the point of insanity, who see day in, day out, people throwing their lives away to various abuses. And they try to stay detached, try not to pigeonhole, but they do come to judgements about people as soon as they see them. They hate it when they do this, but they're usually right. When they're wrong (and it's rare), well, bad things happen, and you can be sure they feel like shit about it.

    Disclaimer: Not talking about all medical professionals, there'll be assholes just like anywhere, but having family in the profession, you can be sure that they're the minority.

    Everyone should get the same treatment, even if he were a 'junkie', they still shouldn't have refused medical treatment or thought him less of a priority. Someone dying, junkie or not, is still blood on their hands. Things like this are sickening.
