Inquest continues into disabled man's death at Morriston Hospital

Second day of inquest into 53yr old Paul Ridd's death at Morriston Hospital in 2009. He had 'severe' special needs and died because of breathing problems.

A nursing manager from the hospital says nursing levels on the ward he died on weren't high enough. They say since his death more nurses are now on duty.

Swansea Coroners Court has also heard how nursing notes into his care weren't good enough and "didn't follow guidelines"

Paul Ridd needed regular "suction" to clear airways. Doctors said should have happened every four hours in ward. Notes suggest it only happened three times in the last two and half days of his life.
