Health bosses are facing mounting questions over patient safety at one of Northern Ireland's largest hospitals after four people died after being diagnosed with Covid-19.
The daughter of one of the patients has raised serious concerns over the use of personal protective equipment (PPE) at Craigavon Area Hospital after she was allowed to visit her dying father while wearing just a face mask.
Yvonne Stewart said her father, John Fleming, had no symptoms and was only diagnosed after he was tested when another patient on the ward was confirmed as a positive case.
The father-of-four from Loughgilly, Co Armagh, who would have turned 80 in January, is due to be laid to rest on Tuesday.
Mr Fleming was diagnosed with cancer three years ago and was admitted to the haematology ward on July 26 for treatment.
He found out he had Covid-19 on August 25 and died 10 days later on September 3, leaving his children and wife of 57 years heartbroken.
On Monday night, Mrs Stewart said: "There are waves of emotion but my youngest brother has taken it particularly bad and was up all last night being physically sick because of it.
"My dad wasn't ready to die, he didn't want to die and we're really, really cross.
"We have just heard today that another patient who was on the same ward and was discharged has been diagnosed with Covid-19 and is now back in the hospital seriously ill, so there could be another person who loses their life." Mrs Stewart said her mum was the only person allowed to visit her dad throughout his month-long stay in the haematology ward.
She tested negative for the virus after her husband was diagnosed.
Mrs Fleming was asked to wear full protective clothing during a subsequent visit.
However, Mrs Stewart said when she went to see her father she was given conflicting advice by several members of staff about the PPE she should wear.
She was subsequently allowed to see her dad while wearing just a mask, she said.
"That was the last time I was able to have a conversation with him, he said he knew he wasn't going to pull through and he wanted his story to be told," she continued.
"The tears were tripping me and he was telling me to be strong, so I told him he had taught me how to be strong.
"I want to meet with the Health Minister, along with my mum, to try and get some answers.
"I don't know how the other families feel but I'm not going to give up.
"Dad went into the hospital because he thought he would be safe, he was getting to ready to leave.
"They just wanted his blood sugar to settle a bit first but his medication was all sitting ready for him to be discharged when he was diagnosed.
"I just want people to wise up, especially younger people out partying - you might think you're not at risk but you never know who you are spreading the virus to."
Mrs Stewart was speaking out after the Southern Trust announced that a fourth patient from the haematology ward at Craigavon Area Hospital died on Monday morning after testing positive for Covid-19.
The trust has not said whether Covid-19 was the primary cause of death; however, the organisation's chief executive, Shane Devlin, expressed his condolences to the patient's family and friends and Health Minister Robin Swann last night vowed that a full and thorough investigation will be carried out into the outbreak.
A level three serious adverse incident (SAI) investigation - the highest level NHS probe possible - has been launched, while efforts are still ongoing to try and establish the source of the outbreak at the hospital, which has experienced three separate clusters in recent weeks.
SDLP MLA Justin McNulty has supported calls for a full and independent investigation.
Mr McNulty said: "This is not and cannot be a witch-hunt - it must be a fact finding mission to ensure whatever has happened, whatever has gone wrong, cannot happen again and that appropriate measures will be implemented to ensure that this is not repeated."
He has also raised concerns that families and pupils and teachers are asked to adhere to social bubbles, while people in hospitals are able to move around more freely.
A spokeswoman from the Southern Trust has said she cannot comment any further due to the SAI proceedings.
