Coroner Michael Oakley resumed inquests into the deaths of former lorry driver Albert Pooley, 89, and 85-year-olds James Metcalfe and Harry Kilvington.

District nurse Penelope Hutchinson said she visited Mr Metcalfe last July and found him with chapped lips, sitting in his own urine and excrement, having not been checked for four-and-a-half hours.

She told the inquest she confronted manager Joanne King after she cleaned Mr Metcalfe up with a colleague.

"I went to see her and said 'This is totally unacceptable, this gentleman deserves basic standards of care, this is somebody's father, somebody's husband'," the district nurse said.

Three months before, agency nurse Kristina Parsons was so concerned about standards that she walked out of her shift four hours early.

The 48-year-old nurse said she did not have direct dealings with any of the three men, but she went into Mr Pooley's room on April 28, hours after he had been admitted to hospital, and found excrement in a commode and dirty wipes on the floor.

Ms Parsons told the inquest: "I went down a corridor, there was a man sat on the edge of the bed eating breakfast with the bedside table crawling in ants.

"It was not just 10 or 15, it was hundreds of them."

She said she informed staff that the resident needed moving, but was told "he was a dirty man who needed to stay there".

Ms Parsons said she was "disgusted" about the state of the commode in Mr Pooley's room and another nurse said she would get someone to clean it up.

She said she feared she might lose her nursing registration if she stayed on shift and told her agency she needed to leave.

The coroner heard from the family of Mr Pooley, an ex-lorry driver who had dementia and other conditions.

'Furious' nurses to vote on taking strike action

  'Furious' nurses to vote on taking strike action Nurses will vote on whether to take strike action over pay after being awarded a below-inflation increase of just 1% - a real-terms cut that unions say compounds years of underpayment. The Royal College of Nursing (RCN) is canvassing the views of its 270,000 members across the UK following the pay award, announced at the end of last month.The RCN said that Government pay restrictions on the NHS since 2010 amount to a 14% real-terms pay cut for nursing staff that has contributed to tens of thousands of unfilled nursing posts.

An agency nurse has told an inquest into the deaths of three elderly care home residents that she saw hundreds of ants crawling on a bedside But she went into Mr Pooley's room on April 28, hours after he had been admitted to hospital and found excrement in a commode and dirty wipes on the floor.

After a serious fall at home in Thirsk where he lived with his wife Kathleen, he went to Sowerby House, weighing around nine-and-a-half stone, in December 2015.

When he died on May 1 2016 he had lost around three stone from his 5ft 6in frame.

Pathologist Dr Carl Gray told the hearing Mr Pooley showed signs of dehydration and was emaciated.

But he said that did not prove that neglect led to his death.

Mr Pooley died from a number of factors, including pneumonia, heart disease and a urinary infection and was on the end-of-life pathway, the inquest heard.

Dr Gray said Mr Metcalfe was an "elderly gentleman with chronic conditions" and was receiving palliative care.

Mr Metcalfe's GP told the hearing she found him attempting to eat fish and chips with his hands when she visited him at the home.

Dr Rachel Doswell said she saw he was sitting too far away from the plate - and the meal was "completely inappropriate" for a man with two teeth.

Pamela Jackson, manager of another care home where Mr Kilvington was due to move after Sowerby House stopped offering nursing care, said she was struck by a very strong smell of urine when she visited the premises in October.

Mr Kilvington had a number of serious conditions including Alzheimer's and died from sepsis from a foot ulcer in November.

Paul Kelsey, a senior carer at the home, told the inquest standards have "drastically" improved.

The inquest continues tomorrow.
