"Disgusted with lack of care"

About: Pinderfields General Hospital

Anything else?

My Mother was 95 she had dementia when she fell and broke her hip this made the dementia much worse. She stopped speaking. When they fed her she was very slow so they just left her. She lost a lot of weight due to not eating properly. The medications were on the trolley expecting the patient to take their own medication.

She was eventually moved into a nursing home at 8.00 at night with no dressings and medication. The Hospital had to send medication by taxi.

The treatment was disgusting.
