He was 65.Linsey speaks with a beautiful fondness about her popular father who was due to move into a granddad flat at the back of her home where he looked forward to being woken up by his young grandson every morning.An anguished Linsey describes how the hospital spent a month saying her dad would be coming home with a care plan before suddenly deciding to move him onto a Covid ward because he was having seizures although he had not tested positive for Covid. There was next to no communication from the hospital for a month when Linsey learned her father had signed a Do Not Resuscitate form without her knowledge.Linsey believes her father ticked too many boxes to fight for in the eyes of the hospital.Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/stolen-goodbyes.

Welcome to the award-winning Stolen Goodbyes with Karen Rice, foreign affairs journalist and podcaster. Each week inspiring wives, husbands, partners, children and newly-weds intimately recount the shock and anguish of death to Covid 19 without warning or goodbye.Forced to grieve in isolation, these people detail needless mistakes and decisions that cost lives including patients being placed on Covid hospital wards when they were Covid free or others condemned to an early death by the secret use of Do Not Resuscitate forms. Some were left to die alone, the ultimate social taboo. This global podcast is a social history record of the wide-spread suffering caused by the Corona virus pandemic of 2020, an infection that changed the world as we know it. The participants of this podcast have bared their souls in a bid to stop their loved ones from being written off as just another statistic when they were much-loved individuals whose premature deaths could help to save others from the same fate while holding those responsible to account. The podcast has helped participants and listeners alike in their grieving process.Created, produced and hosted by Karen Rice, the Stolen Goodbyes podcast won gold in the fiercely competitive Best Lockdown category of the British Podcast Award 2021.Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/stolen-goodbyes.
