The Aneurin Bevan Health Board has apologised and paid £500 to the widow of a deaf patient who they treated as if he had dementia.
The woman, known as Mrs W, also said she and her husband were not told about a cancer diagnosis and was unhappy with how the Health Board communicated with her and her family.
Her 80 year old husband died at the Nevill Hall Hospital in Abergavenny in October 2011.
