Former four-star running back Asa Martin attended Auburn this season, but unfortunate circumstances led to his transfer from the school just over two weeks ago.Head coach Gus Malzahn and company allowed Martin to play in five games during his freshman season – the new redshirt rule only allows a player to play in four games. Head coach Gus Malzahn took significant heat from Auburn fans around the country after the botched handling of their young star running back.After the error, Martin took to Twitter to announce his plans to leave the program.It didn’t take long for Martin to find a new home. Martin is headed to Miami.The running back room just added a BEAST!#WelcomeToTheU, @TheAsaMartin_. #Surge19 pic.twitter.com/7HI1tT0Tu7— Canes Football (@CanesFootball) December 19, 2018Martin was the No. 9 running back recruit in the 2018 class.He’ll redshirt during the 2019 season and be eligible to play in 2020.
‘The nurse in charge said staff were often too busy to provide personal care and this meant some patients could go up to two months without having their hair washed’Care Quality Commission report on Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Woolwich The inspection found a host of failings including long waits in A&E Credit:Dominic Lipinski/PA “We spoke with the nurse in charge who said staff were often too busy to provide personal care and this meant some patients could go up to two months without having their hair washed.”Patients in the hospital’s acute medical unit told how they were left “very embarrassed” after being ordered to use pads for incontinence, and sleep in soiled ones, because staff were too busy to help them use a commode.A spokesman for Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust, which runs the hospital, said: “The report does note that we have made progress since the last CQC inspection in February 2014, and we are pleased that our staff received a rating of ‘Good’ for providing a caring, kind, and compassionate service.”He said the trust planned improvements to care in its wards and A&E department, had made changes to improve privacy and that the failure to record vital signs related to one patient, who had received treatment throughout. Patients were forced to wait two months to have their hair washed because nurses said it was not their job to help the sick bathe or shower, a damning report says.Queen Elizabeth Hospital in south London has been ordered to make urgent improvements after watchdogs found A&E staff failing to monitor patients’ vital signs, with sick patients treated in chairs and corridors due to overcrowding.Inspectors from the Care Quality Commission (CQC) intervened after hospital staff failed to notice that a patient with blood poisoning was deteriorating badly. The patient – who had suffered a cardiac arrest just six weeks earlier – was left for almost six hours without vital signs being monitored, with action only taken after they began shaking and struggling to breathe.Watchdogs said some staff were found treating patients “sharply” and with a lack of kindness.On medical wards, patients were told to use incontinence pads because staff said they were too busy to help them go to the toilet.The report said: “We spoke with a patient on ward 18 who told us they had repeatedly asked staff for a bath or shower and had been told it wasn’t their job to provide this. Two other patients on this ward told us they would like to have their hair washed but staff told them they were too busy. Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?
