FULL TITLE: 'If they'd treated a dog like dad, the RSPCA would have blown the hospital apart': Families of victims of Stafford hospital scandal tell their stories
Families of victims of the Stafford Hospital scandal have revealed harrowing details of how their loved ones died. Here are some of their stories:
What I witnessed on the wards I will take to my grave Ellen Linstead, 67, died on December 13, 2006, of C.difficile and MRSA after being admitted with bone cancer. Her daughter Deb Hazeldine said wards were filthy and she had to wash faeces off her mothers hands.
She said she would arrive to the sound of her mothers screams. When Mrs Linstead died she was so badly infected with C.difficile she had to be buried in a sealed body bag.
Mrs Hazeldine said: What I witnessed on the wards I will take to my grave and it spurs me on to make sure it never happens again to anyone else.
Nurses acted as if he wasnt worth saving Peter Burnhill, 84, died on March 11, 2007, a week after being admitted with breathing problems. The former typographer, who had leukaemia, was left for six hours on a trolley in accident and emergency.
He discharged himself after being left with no food and suffering grazed shins, allegedly due to rough treatment by nurses.
His wife Sonia said: Nurses acted as if he wasnt worth saving. He came out of hospital visibly shaken and much weaker.

yes. get treated now and stay out of the hospitals in the future.
my wife and i are helping a vet and he is in a “palace of a grand va hospital.” but we notice that it is filthy on the inside.
the underneath of my vet friend’s bed was not picked up for visits a week apart.
that tells you what government run care is.
Which VA are you refering to?
I work for the VA and our hospital is very clean.
I have gone to Amish homes here and their way ,at least what I have seen of it appears the best to me.
When the old person becomes bedridden they place their bed in their dining room where each family member comes through all day and if that person needs something it is attended to.
Now I cannot say this is what they all do, but I have observed it more than once
