"Staff errors gave my mother internal bleeding"

My mother was admitted with suspected DVT after having had wrist surgery at Neville Hall. She was given Warfarin and Heparin at the same time on the Emergency Assessment Unit and when moved to a ward none of the staff seemed to know what she'd been given. This resulted in her bleeding internally and becoming very frail. Staff also didn't help her with basic tasks like eating with a broken wrist - if she couldn't cut or open it, she went without, and with washing/ the toilet. The ward was freezing - minus 7 degrees one night. Overall, there was a lack of communication, care and borderline negligence.
