Who  is Valerie Kneale?

A stroke patient ‘died after being sexually assaulted’ as she lay ill in a hospital bed, an inquest heard.

Valerie Kneale had been admitted to Blackpool Victoria Hospital following a stroke and had later broken her leg when falling from a chair.

The 75-year-old’s condition deteriorated and she died four days later.

A police investigation was launched after a post mortem concluded she died from a non-medical-related internal injury.

Cause of Death

A male hospital worker was arrested on suspicion of murder, rape and sexual assault and has since been released on bail pending further investigation.

Opening the investigation, Blackpool and Fylde Coroner Alan Wilson said: ‘Concerns have been raised about a possible injury to the genital area.

“This prompted a police investigation by the Lancashire Police.”

The autopsy revealed that although Ms. Kneale had a significant stroke, the pathologist did not think it was the cause of death.

Mr. Wilson said: “She said that she was due to internal and external bleeding which in turn was due to a vaginal laceration or tear.”

The pathologists report believed that she was caused by sexual assault after she was admitted to the hospital.

Ms. Kneale died on November 16, 2018.

Investigation

Police learned of the allegations of abuse and neglect at the Blackpool Victoria Hosptial stroke unit in Lancs later that month.

Several autopsies were carried out on various patients, including Ms. Kneale.

A murder investigation was launched and information was received regarding other allegations of serious sexual assault against two patients, in addition to the sexual assault of a health professional working in the stroke unit.

The arrested worker has been suspended by the Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust. The arrest is not related to the ongoing investigation into the poisoning and neglect allegations.

Wilson postponed the hearing for five months while police continue their investigations.

Ms Kneales’s family, who did not attend, have been informed.

Mr Wilson said: ‘It is clearly necessary for this court to postpone further the investigation into the death of Ms Kneales to allow the police to continue their investigations.

“We should not carry out an investigation while the police are actively conducting their own investigation.”wikipedia
