The trust which runs stafford hospital has been fined £200,000 for failures in care which led to the death of a diabetic patient in 2007.
Gillian Astbury died after nurses failed to give her insulin. Stafford Crown Court heard how there was a systematic failure in providing proper handovers between nursing shifts and proper record keeping. As a result nurses failed to give the essential medication Ms Astburyneeded.
The judge said it was a wholly avoidable and tragic death of a vulnerable patient who was admitted to hospital for care but died because of a lack of it.
Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust has also been ordered to pay £27,000 in costs.
