Man dead for 2 days in hospital toilet
It took all of two days for hospital staff to discover the body of an elderly patient who suffered a fatal heart attack in one of their toilets.
A spokesperson for the Atrium Medisch Centrum in the town of Heerlen has confirmed the report. The man, who was suffering from cardio-vascular and pulmonary complaints, had an appointment at the centre’s outpatients’ clinic on Wednesday.
He died when he went to the toilet just before his appointment, but his body was not discovered until Friday morning.
