My mother who suffers from vascular dementia was taken from her care home to Wishaw General for an injury to her finger where they operated to save two. As she has dementia they were keen to get her back to care home asap. The care home took fresh clothing and we also handed in similar, but on the day the paramedics returned her, all she had on was a skimpy top and a pair of hospital netting pants. nothing else. The care home was appalled as were we, when we learned of this today..just because she has dementia, doesn't mean her dignity should be ignored. Absolutely wrong.
