Andy Hibbard is a male resident of Holby.

Biography

In 2016, Andy's son Evan suffered a catastrophic head injury during a boxing match, and he died at Holby City Hospital. The loss of his son devastated Andy; it caused him to quit his job and remain indoors for a year.

On 11 May 2019, Andy's daughter Katy was taken to the hospital's emergency department after being injured in a fight. However, when he visited her, she lied and told him that she had slipped at a party after drinking too much alcohol. Sister Lisa "Duffy" Duffin examined Katy and found that she had equal air entry on both sides, and she decided to run some more tests and fetch a doctor. Whilst he waited for a doctor to see Katy, he donated money to Duffy's campaign to make the department more accommodating to dementia patients, claiming that his aunt was a sufferer. Duffy explained that she had the disease, and, when she left to get consultant Ethan Hardy to check over Katy, clinical nurse manager Charlie Fairhead assured Andy that she was the best nurse that he had ever worked with and claimed that she had more experience and knowledge than some of the doctors.

Ethan examined Katy and found that she had reduced air entry on one side, leading Andy to accuse Duffy of incompetence. In a corridor, Andy complained to Ethan about Duffy's fitness to practise and brought up Charlie's remark about her expertise. He assured her that he had nothing against her and that he felt sorry for her, but Duffy told him that she did not want his pity.

Later, Katy began to deteriorate and was taken into resus. Duffy and Ethan deduced from her symptoms that she was suffering from the effects of an overdose. Andy berated Duffy and accused her of giving his daughter too much medication; overwhelmed, she ran out of the room. Afterwards, she realised that Katy had taken something else, and, upon questioning, Andy told Duffy that he had been taking tramadol for back pain. Katy admitted that she had been taking her father's drugs for some time, and Duffy left them to talk alone. As Katy was taken up to the wards, Andy told Duffy that he hoped that she would be around for a while longer, and he claimed that he should have listened to Charlie's high praise of her.
