UK morgues full of unconscious people


BRITAIN’S mortuaries are full of people who are probably just really badly hurt, according to new research.

Going to sleep is the most dangerous thing you can do in a hospital

A study found that at least 40% of the humans in hospital morgues wake up very suddenly when a pathologist tries to open their chest with a scalpel.

Professor Julian Cook, from Roehampton University Medical School, said: “Along with A&E waiting times and out-of-hours services the one thing the NHS needs to focus on is working out whether or not people are dead.

“I suspect that one of the key issues with A&E is that there’s a lot of dead people ending up there, instead of going to the morgue.

“Meanwhile, the people who work in the morgues are just getting one terrible fright after another.”

Mortuary assistant Emma Bradford, said: “My nerves are shredded while my friend Jan who works in A&E says she sits around with her feet up all day.

“She reckons most of them are dead when they’re brought in, but they end up waiting there for hours because they never respond when their name is called.”

Bill McKay, a pathologist at Stevenage Royal Infirmary, said: “We’re going to start anaesthetising all the bodies that come in. It takes a lot longer to perform an autopsy on someone who is screaming in agony.

“If we can just get them to lie down and be quiet we can remove their heart, lungs and liver in about 20 minutes.

“And then it’s on to the next one.”
