These wounds happened in a care home.  We were waiting outside the room whilst mum was being toileted, not only did they not tell us, they put her to bed covered her with the blankets with her leg pouring with blood and then denied it.  Despite the history of poor care in our case which they were aware of.care.

After this reported incident, and reported to Adult Social Care, a senior carer had to be present in the room on hoisting.

It isn’t just that these things happen, it’s that there is no normal reaction of concern when one questions anything.  It is an indifferent reaction, a sort of detachment from reality.   We were fighting to get Renee out of care at this stage and home with the family, another sleepless night for the family with no choice.
