"My mum's admission to Cavendish unit"

About: Leigh Infirmary Mh Oupatients Clinic / Women's Mental Health Unit

(as a relative),

What happened? Well where do i start?

Mum went in there walking and came out in a wheel chair. She has now got drug induced Parkinsonism due to the drugs. She's got a DVT, bed sores, had 2 strokes and MRSA.

You don't expect to go in hospital and come out disabled. And she has a catheter in as well.
