Heartbroken daughter claims mum was left with ammonia burns after ‘lying in own urine for eight days’ before dying

Furious Corrin Garland has lodged a complaint with care providers who were visiting her mother twice each day

A heartbroken daughter has claimed her vulnerable mother was left lying in a filthy bed, soaked in her own urine by carers before dying.

Elderly Margot Green was having visits by carers twice each day – but grieving daughter Corrin Garland says they let her mum down.

After days of struggle, Mrs Green, a grandmother from Taunton, Somerset, managed to pull her emergency alarm. She was rushed to a nearby hospital where stunned medics discovered she was covered in ammonia burns believed to be caused by urine.

And while doctors said she had an infection, she was too frail to undergo more tests. Four days later, on July 14, she died.

Now her 43-year-old daughter Corrin has lodged a complaint against her mum’s £35-a-week carers, claiming they did not care for her mum properly before her death

She also claims that Margot’s bed was covered in urine and faeces.

Corrin has lodged an official complaint to Way Ahead Care, who provided Margot with two half-hour visits every day. It was the responsibility of the carers to wash her, prepare her meals and make sure she was taking her medication.

Corrin, from Ilminster, Somerset, said: “When I saw the burns all over my mum’s body, I was horrified.
