"Unacceptable treatment of the elderly"

About: Leicester Royal Infirmary

Anything else?

My mother was admitted to LRI in November for " a few days". As a consequence of poor medical care, she is still there. In the latest episode staff recorded, but failed to deal with, her falling temperature until she was on the verge of hypothermia. The family is very angry at the way in which she has been treated.
