My 91 year old mother in law was move from the medical assessment ward at midnight to ward 18. To a bare bed....no blankets. When she told the nurses that she couldn't sleep because she was shivering with cold she was told that they didn't have any. 91 years old and her second heart attack and shivering on a barer bed. disgraceful. I have written to my MP because exactly the same thing happened to an 80 friend of mine who went in for a knee operation 18 months ago. she had no pillow either. Nothing has improved.
