The Blissful State of Health Care in the UK

Maybe not so blissful. Dying woman left in hospital `squalor’, family claims - Telegraph

She needed help eating. (It was in her records.) If she got any it was from other patients, and not from hospital staff.

Her hands were never washed.

Her hearing aids were either left in overnight (making it hard to sleep) or never put it in the morning.

In short, the hospital neglected her.

The family is hoping for an apology, because the hospitals are run by the government and it is really hard to sue the government.
