My mother was admitted with cellulitis (a common skin infection).
She went into Blackburn Hospital, caught pneumonia. I was told they would not resucitate her if her heart stopped. They administered morphine, this drug interferes with breathing. I believe my mother died as a result.
The doctor, when asked, stated well hospitals are the place to contract infections!
I have several more serious complaints that I will not bore you with.
