‘Nil by Mouth’, an Interview with Zandra Lewis on the COVID End of Life Pathways
Zandra Lewis was a registered nurse and Director of Abbotswood Nursing Home on the Isle of Man at the time the COVID-19 pandemic was announced. In this interview Mrs. Lewis gives her account of what happened when the Island’s government took direct control of Abbotswood, during the early part of the COVID era. Whilst this situation is, as far as I’m aware, unique, it gives insight into practices that were common across Britain and the wider world - those of end of life pathways, denial of food and water and use of respiratory suppressant drugs like midazolam.
