Hospital criticised over care after woman suffers bruising

The daughter of a woman who suffered bad bruising during a stay at Tameside Hospital says staff have failed to learn lessons.

Lisa Evans says she was told her mother Marguerita Evans had ‘slipped’ while being moved from a bed to a wheelchair by a nursing auxiliary.

The incident comes just 10 months after the family claimed the 76-year-old, who suffers from Alzheimer’s disease, was left on a trolley in a corridor at the same hospital.

Tameside Hospital said they are investigating the incident.
