Intravenous news: The BBC report “The deaths of three patients at a Stockport hospital are being investigated after a batch of contaminated saline was found. Police said an inquiry into the deaths of two people was extended following the death of an 84-year-old man. All three – including another man aged 71 and a woman, 44 – were patients at Stepping Hill Hospital.

Staff alerted police on Tuesday after finding vials of saline solution had been tampered with. A further 11 people are believed to have been affected by the incident but were not seriously harmed as a result. The discovery came after several patients suffered lower than normal blood sugar levels.”
