An inquest has found a lack of care contributed to the death of a 94 year old grandmother.
Molly Darby died four weeks after moving to The Beeches care home in Wath Upon Dearne near Rotherham in 2007. Her family say that within those four weeks she looked like a concentration camp victim.
At Rotherham Magistrates Court Coroner Nicola Mundy said:
I am not convinced the care staff claim to have given to Mrs Darby was in fact provided.
She went on to say that although Mrs Darby died of a chest infection she believed:
her nutritional status and mobility, both of which deteriorated at The Beeches, were contributory factors.
