Richard Handley, from Lowestoft, died at Ipswich Hospital’s accident and emergency department on November 17, 2012, from complications due to a bowel obstruction.

An x-ray revealed he had severe constipation requiring surgery to remove 10kg of faecal matter. The inquest also heard from pathologist Dr Jason Wong.
He said at the time of Mr Handley’s death his colon was ‘massively distended’ and had stretched to 18cm in diameter.
A detailed care plan was created, with input from his family, which included regular assessments of Richard’s dietary needs and monitoring of when he went to the toilet, including advice from his family on how to help him to relax.
However, Mrs Handley said the status of the care home changed to ‘supported living’ in 2010 and that, unknown to her and the rest of the family, his care plan was lost and his monitoring slipped.
