Wrong Place, Wrong Time Jan 1, 2015 The RTS award-winning documentary series returns for a twelfth series following patients treated in the same 24 hour period at St George's in south west London. The hospital has one of the busiest A&E departments in Britain - under more pressure than ever. It's a place where stories of life, love and loss unfold every day. This shocking episode follows three middle age women who are stabbed in broad daylight in a supermarket car park in Surrey. The women were all previously unknown to each other and rushed to St George's in the aftermath of the random attack. This episode follows the impact of the trauma on both the victims as well as the emergency department and the staff who work there. As the staff at St George's prepare for the arrival of the stabbing victims, Registrar JD talks about the dangers of knife wounds and the unexpected nature of this type of attack "if a knife has hit a vital organ or blood vessel then you can be in a lot of trouble, very quickly….stabbings can be quite common, you certainly expect them on a Saturday night but you don't expect it from three middle aged ladies in the Sainsbury's car park." The first victim rushed to hospital is 67 year old Jean, she has been stabbed once in the back whilst carrying her shopping back to her car. As she travels to St George's, her daughter Clair explains that she had only gone to Sainsbury's that day to pick up a particular type of Macaroni cheese for her grandson. Doctors are worried that the stab wound may have hit a vital organ or a major vessel and she is sent for a CT scan. Whilst Jean is having her CT scan, Clair recalls growing up in a pub in Fulham where her mum was the Landlady "I remember a couple of guys came in with machetes yelling and shouting and she gave them a jolly good talking to… she's always been feisty… she can throw someone on the floor if she needs to". Jean's CT scan reveals an arterial bleed around Jean's chest and doctors need to monitor her for any further bleeding to keep her stable. 71 year old Rani is the next victim to arrive at St George's. She was stabbed twice in the back whilst waiting to catch a bus. Rani's daughter Soraya was at work when she received a call from a police officer, "I think he pretty much just said your mum has been stabbed, those words hold so much in them, it could be that she's been stabbed and killed". CT scans reveal that Rani has a lot of blood around her kidney and she needs to be monitored for further internal bleeding. The final victim to arrive at hospital is 62 year old Janet who was stabbed three times in the same car park. A passer by managed to stem the bleeding until an ambulance was able to get to the scene. Janet's son Alex heard about the attack through his brother's girlfriend, she said 'someone's gone on a mad rampage with a knife near the house and your mum has been stabbed". As doctors wait for the results of Janet's CT scan, Janet's son and ex-husband Mustafa are making their way to hospital. Mustafa recalls how he first met Janet in 1977 when he collected glasses from her table at a pub he was working in and knew he was going to marry her the minute he laid eyes on her. Janet's CT scan reveals that the stab wound near her chest has caused a lot of internal bleeding and doctors consult cardiothoracic surgeons. In the course of inserting a chest drain to help her breath again, Janet's blood pressure drops to a critical level and she is declared 'Code Red.'
