DEATH OF A SOUTHAMPTON PATIENT AT FISHERTON LUNATIC ASYLUM.—INQUEST ON THE BODY.—An inquest was held at the Edinbro' Hotel, St. Mary's-road, on Wednesday afternoon, by Mr. Edward Coxwell, the borough coroner, on the body of Arthur Pollard, aged 42 years.—[ . . . ] The jury having been sworn, the Coroner said he had thought it right to call them together that day to inquire into a case which might probably be found to arise from natural causes, and he believed a medical certificate would be produced to that effect, but there were circumstances connected with the case which rendered the inquiry desirable if not necessary. He might state that the deceased, who was probably well known to them, suffered from an affection of the brain, and it was found necessary to send him to the Lunatic Asylum at Fisherton, where he met with some accident, and died. There was a great desire on the part of his friends and relations for further inquiry into the cause of his death, and therefore thought it right that such inquiry should take place, in order that if blame attached to any party it might be fully established, and if there was no blame they might be acquitted of any fault or responsibility with respect to the death of the deceased. It would be necessary to have a post-mortem examination, and therefore he should adjourn the inquiry after he had taken some formal evidence.—Mr. Joseph Turner Clark affirmed that the deceased was a relation of his, and he had known him for many years. He was until lately a clerk in the employ of the Isle of Wight Steampacket Company. For the last few months he had been suffering from an affection of the brain, in other respects his bodily health was good recently. He had now seen and recognised the body as that of Arthur Pollard.—William Hill, one of the relieving officers of the Southampton Incorporation, said he conveyed the deceased to the Fisherton Lunatic Asylum that day fortnight, and left him there. He was then in a deranged state of intellect but hid bodily health was good. Before witness left the asylum the doctor saw him, and received him as a patient.—The Coroner said that was as far as he proposed to go that day, and as it was necessary to have a post-mortem examination he should adjourn the inquiry until Friday.—[ . . . ] On the re-assembling of the jury yesterday (Friday) Morning, Dr. Scott stated that he made a post-mortem examination of the body of the deceased on Thursday, Dr. Lush and Mr. Miller being present. He examined the left lower extremity, and found the limb from the foot up to the knee in a very decomposed state. There was no laceration of the skin in the neighbourhood of the injury. In cutting into the part he found fracture of the lower end of the tibia on the inside, and a splintered fracture of the lower end of the fibula on the outside. The ligaments in front of the ancle joint were quite torn through, but the tendons round the joint were entire. He then opened the head, but the brain, from its being six days after death, was in a very decomposed state, so that he could scarcely express an opinion as to whether the softening and other changes there were owing to disease or decomposition. The left pupil was considerably more dilated than the right. If this existed during life it would indicate mischief in the brain. He examined the chest, and found there nothing worthy of remark, the lungs and heart being in a healthy condition, so far as he could judge, though considerably decomposed. He first saw the body on Saturday, two days after death, when it was not decomposed, and the left extremity was then black and a large quantity of fluid issuing from it, so that he came to the conclusion gangrene came on the limb during life, caused, no doubt, by the excessive injury. His opinion was that this, with gangrene supervening, would be sufficient to cause death. He did not observe marks of violence on any other part of the body. The injuries to the ancle joint were so extensive that he could scarcely imagine they were done at one time. It was quite possible that the injury might have been aggravated by the conduct of the deceased himself, especially as an insane patient to a great degree might be insensible to pain. It was a case of very great difficulty.—Edward Newman, principal attendant at the Fisherton Asylum, deposed that when deceased was admitted he was in a feeble state of bodily health. After some days he became excited, and was in the airing court on the 26th ultimo, dancing about, twisting his legs, and cutting all sorts of capers, and appeared to be amusing himself. He suddenly dropped down, and attempted to take his boot off. The attendance went to him, lifted him up, and finding he could not stand he called witness, who went to him and found he had injured his leg. Witness proceeded for Dr. Lush, who went with him to the ward, and Mr. Miller also came. At the time deceased fell there was no one within half-a-dozen yards of him. He was carried from the airing ward and placed on a bed, where his boot was taken off. After a starch bandage had been applied he was very restless, which continued up to the time of his death, and it was difficult to make him lie still, as he kept on drawing his legs about. He did not sleep, and died on the 30th. Up to that time no remedy had been attempted beyond the starch bandage. By Mr. J. Clark, J.P.: The deceased had on a Blucher boot, which was removed quite easily.—By the jury: It was a gravel walk, with green lawn at the side.—Mr. Reuben Miller, medical superintendent at the Asylum, deposed that deceased did not improve at all between the time of his admission and the accident. He was put on extraordinary diet, six ounces of wine, eggs, beef tea ad libitum, &c. When the boot was remove there was a swelling about the instep, ancle joint, and the whole of the foot. Dr. Lush and himself made out very clearly a fracture of the external bone of the lower limb. He was extending and contracting the injured limb continuously. The two attendants steadied it as well as they could, and he placed a band of lint, three thicknesses, round the ancle, and over that a starch bandage lightly applied, anticipating more swelling. He administered an opiate that night, which had no effect, and in the morning the swelling was considerable, and the deceased much exhausted from his sleepless night. He ordered him eggs and wine and cold brandy and water from time to time. The bandage was removed, as it was perfectly useless, and they attempted to steady the foot by pillows and hand pressure, but without effect. Every possible effort was made to keep him quiet, but without avail, and he continued in the same state up to the morning of his death—the 30th. The swelling continued, and it was utterly impossible, except by placing the whole of the body in a vice, to adopt any treatment beyond that which was adopted. Witness was aware that gangrene had set in previous to his death. The case was utterly hopeless after the 27th. He still attributed death to paralysis, and not to gangrene, though that undoubtedly hastened it. He did not connect paralysis with the cause of the accident.—By Dr. Scott: When he detected external fracture of the external bone he suspected fracture also of the internal one. The foot was never still for one moment up to the time of his death, and the ligaments might have given away themselves.—The Coroner said the great object of the inquiry was to ascertain whether the deceased had been properly treated at the Asylum. The injury seemed to be accidental, and afterwards he received every care and attention.—The Jury returned a verdict that the deceased died from the cause of the accident, and added that every care and attention had been paid to him while at Fisherton.
