"dont feel right leaving my mam there"

About: Darlington Memorial Hospital

my mam s currently on ward 44 don't feel any piece of mind leaving her there its her first time in hospital so we are all very worried we found out nurses are very abrupt she is scared and confused and to be treated with no care is very worrying for us, lady in next bed to her wet herself at 3pm when we visited and when we came back at 6.30 had still not been cleaned up we found it had run half way down the room so we told nurse and we were made to feel in the wrong! my mam was asked what she wanted for dinner was given something completely different not wanting to make a fuss didn't mention it she when then offered dessert she told them what she wanted and because she had not eaten her tea they never brought her pudding! I don't want to leave her there and she is in for aleast another 5 days I feel very worried!!
