"I feel my mother's dignity was stolen in her last days"

My mother at the age of 55 and dying from cancer was admitted to Blackpool Victoria Hopsital early last year.
She was put on a ward so short of staff, that she felt she was imposing on them to assist her to the toilet or onto the commode as she couldn't use a bed pan. Therefore she didn't leave her bed to go, and sometimes wasn't seen to for hours at a time.
This information has only just come to light. It was held from me as i work there, and I would have caused quite a scene if i'd known about it at the time.
