"Care of my dying mother-no dignity!"

My mothers medical treatment was ok, but there seemed to be a lack of communication between staff, same sex wards were next to each other and a male patient was constantly wondering around the female ward- all the time, unfortunately mum was unaware that her private parts were exposed to all and sundry. Requests for a cover up or some pads were treated vaguely, as it was 'her fault for kicking off her covers'. I provided pads. So as for dignity I felt there was non in her case. In fairness the hospital did contacted me and taken my complaints seriously, as I was in touch with them at the time. This is just a reminder for all staff and dignity of all patients.
