My mum went into hospital with a broken ankle, she was 83yrs old. For her age she was a fit, dignified lady. Her treatment in hospital was appauling. She was bedridden as she had a pot on up to her hip and 3wks down the line I found the start of bed sores. The lady in the next bed had bad diarrhoea and dirty pads were left on the floor, we could see our mum going down hill fast and wanted to bring her home but were flatly refused. Mum then developed diarrhoea but nothing was done, we were not informed of the c/diff untill we wrote a letter to the N.H.S. asking for an explination. She was sent to another hospital, still with diarrhoea, where my sister found her 2 days later covered in her own dried vomit trying to catch it in the lid of a date box. 2days later she was rushed back to the 1st hospital where they removed her bowel, she died 4 days later. We requested a meeting with her consultant and some ward staff, but they declined. This is just a small account of my mums 8wk in hospital, it reads pages. It shouldnt have happened.
