‘Meal blunder’ horror
A WAR hero choked to death after a meal blunder while being cared for in hospital.
Roddy MacDonald, 84, who suffered from Parkinson’s Disease, was fed goulash by staff when he should have been given only soft, mashed up food.
Mr MacDonald was being treated at Glasgow’s Gartnavel General Hospital for a urine infection when he died.
Police were called and an investigation was carried out which found failures at the hospital.
