Nottingham Dentist Has Potentially Infected 22,000 Patients With HIV
In a case of dental negligence that can only be described as shocking, a dentist in Nottingham has seemingly failed to take the most basic of precautions to prevent cross infection over a period of 32 years thus endangering the lives of thousands.
If you have been exposed to life threatening blood borne infections due to this shocking instance of dental negligence act now and get the compensation you deserve.
Dentist Desmond DíMello of Daybrook Dental Practice in Nottingham worked on 22,000 patients over his 32 years of practice, but appears not to have taken the most basic precautions to prevent the spread of blood borne infections between patients putting thousands of dental patients at serious risk of contracting life threatening diseases such as HIV, Hepatitis and other serious infections. Unfortunately, thousands of DíMelloís patients treated at Daybrook will now need to have blood tests and face the anguish of a wait for results and possible findings of infection.
David Corless-Smith whom has been offering victims legal advice adds ďWe have looked at the timeline of regulation of Dr Desmond DíMelloís practice and have discovered that he was not suspended by the dentistsí regulator the General Dental Council (GDC) until late August 2014 despite a video being taken of his poor cross infection practices and supplied to NHS England in June 2014. Questions will need to be asked why it took 2 months for the GDC to suspend him when the evidence was clear that he was danger to patients.Ē
The Dental Law Partnership also feel that the Care Quality Commission also have other important questions to answer as the CGC visited Daybrook Dental Practice where DíMello worked as part of their planned dental practice inspection visits in Nov 2013, and reviewed it again in Feb 2014, yet somehow declared that they had no concerns about Desmond DíMelloís cleanliness and infection control.
Unfortunately for patients, the CQC report appears completely inaccurate, potentially endangering the lives of thousands. DíMello had seemingly deceived inspectors as he was made aware of the CQCís intentions to visit and inspect his practice, allowing him the time to Ďclean up his actí before CQC inspectors arrived. This apparent deception has endangered the lives of thousands of patients as they were continuously exposed to the risk of infection.
To prevent this happening in the future and to protect dental patients, the Dental Law Partnership, expert dental negligence solicitors are calling for unannounced surprise practice inspections by CQC to be made mandatory for all dental practices.
Solicitors at the Dental Law Partnership are urging patients of the Daybrook Dental Practice in Nottingham and those whom have been treated by Desmond DíMello to come forward.
