Violet was treated at a hospital in England for a rash

Heather Lawrence was shocked to see her mother Violet (90) at a hospital in Manchester, England.

“The bed and diaper were soaked in urine. The door was open and she had no underwear. She was in a room mixed with male and female,” Heather told the BBC.

“There were people out there who could see her in that position. My mother did not want to see her like that.”

Violet, who suffered from dementia, fell in May 2021 and was taken to Damside General Hospital.
