Stepping hill is not a bad hospital but it let's its self down with things like this.I had two ops on my lower spine 1st in 05 the other in 07,The one in 05 I was left covered i iodine & was never given a bed bath & I lay like that for three days.I wasn't very happy.

My mother is in steping hill hospital now, she went in because she slipped from her chair, that was almost 11 weeks ago, she had no apparent injuries when admitted, kept in for some physio, caught sickness bug on ward, now as a grade 4 pressure sore, infected and life threatening, she is 88. It is so upsetting, have heard other relatives with similar stories, worried sick.Why are the elderley treated with so little respect in this country? where is the compassion,it is just as if they no longer count.

My mother died April 3rd, mothers day, as a consequence of the pressure sore, I just cannot believe it.she had no other medical condition when she was admitted into that hospital, only a water infection. WHY WHY WHY?
