Very sad, very disturbing.

A World War Two veteran died after twice being attacked by another patient on a hospital ward, an inquest heard.

Former Spitfire pilot Kenneth Tyrer, 90, was "barged" to the floor by a patient at Yeovil District Hospital, Somerset, on 9 June last year.

Three days later the frail pensioner was kicked to the ground by the same patient and died 48 hours later.

In a narrative conclusion, the coroner said there was "no risk assessment or action taken" after the first assault.

Mr Tyrer, from Milborne Port in Somerset, had dementia but had been declared medically fit to leave hospital on 15 June.




The Grandfather-of-two was due to move into a care home with Sheila, his wife of 66 years.

An inquest at Wells Town Hall heard the first attack on Mr Tyrer had been recorded as a "no harm" fall by hospital staff.

In the second attack, he suffered a fractured hip but after undergoing an operation he developed pneumonia and died.

That is sad. These sort of incidents are commonplace in care homes with patients with violent dementia.
