"Gone missing"

About: Whiston Hospital

Has anyone else had a problem with patients goods going missing after arrival on the ward? We took a large carrier bag containing a complete change of clothing, a new washbag and new toiletries, and my mother-in-laws very expensive dentures, into the Observation Ward on Sunday morning 30 March 2014 at approximately 11 am and it has not been seen since. On Monday evening she was transferred to St Helens Duffy Suite, minus clothes, night clothes, washbag and dentures. Has anyone else had a similar problem?
