My mum died after being left in her own urine for eight days

Its beggars belief that we keep on seeing these shocking photo’s and stories of complete and utter neglect. How any human being can be left and treated in such an inhumane way.  Joanna

Daughter claims her tragic 69-year-old mum was left in a disgusting condition as carers “neglected her and took away her dignity”

A devastated woman has ­accused care workers of negligence following the death of her mum – who was left lying in a urine-soaked bed for eight days. Margot Green, 69, was being visited by carers at her home twice daily but one day pressed her emergency alarm and was rushed to hospital. Doctors at Musgrove Park Hospital in Taunton found the pensioner was in agony with ammonia burns. Although medics confirmed she had an infection, she was too frail to have more tests and died four days later.

Daughter Corrin Garland, 43, says she returned to her mum’s house and was horrified to find it in a “disgusting” condition. Margot’s bed was covered in urine and faeces and Corrin claims she had not been showered for three weeks. Corrin has now made an official ­complaint to Way Ahead Care, who ­provided Margot with two half-hour care visits each day for £35 a week.
