Holby City fans left confused over medical blunder amid ‘degrading’ death

In tonight’s Holby City, tragedy struck when Zav Duval (Marcus Griffiths) got locked in the basement with “Scary” Sue Buchanan (Angela Lonsdale).

Sadly, a patient had gone down there too and taken a turn for the worse.

Zav and Sue tried get her back on the mend, but viewers were left confused over some of their methods.

At one point, Sue took the patient’s blood pressure, but she didn’t take it from Pamela’s bare arm.

“Since when did it become ok to take someone’s blood pressure over their jumper?”

Viewers noticed too, with one writing: “Since when did it become ok to take someone’s blood pressure over their jumper?”

And another said: “You just took a blood pressure over a baggy jumper! What kind of a nurse are you? Needs retraining.”

Eventually, Zav tried to resuscitate the poor woman but wasn’t getting anywhere.

Sue stepped in and urged the doctor to stop, sensing there was no hope.

She told him: “Stop, this isn’t right. It’s degrading for her.

“It’s been 20 minutes. Would you keep going if she was on the ward?”

As Zav stepped away from the old lady, Sue added: “I’m sorry Pamela, pet. We did our best.”

Eventually, Zav and Sue’s colleagues realised they were missing and went to rescue them.

Holby City continues next Tuesday at 8pm on BBC One.
