David Geddes


My dad died 24/01/2021 from urosepsis. (Sepsis and Urinary Tract Infections) Dad became paraplegic 18 months prior due to a spinal cord cavernoma. (Sepsis and Paralysis)

My Dad had 2 grade 4 bed sores, one to the bone. (Sepsis and Pressure Ulcers/Injuries) He received care from community nurses daily and 2 carers 4 times a day! The carers would often forget to switch my Dad’s day catheter bag to night mode resulting in urine back tracking into my Dad! Along with this and the delay in detecting a UTI, it cost my Dad his life! I’m at the moment fighting for answers for my Dad! The more I read of urosepsis, the more I see neglect from the people who were put in place to care for him!
