Extract from the Telegraph:
"A war veteran died after being treated "like a parcel" by nursing home staff, a coroner has said.
Charles Hounslow, a former RAF pilot, was left to die in agony after carers failed to notice that he had a broken hip for two days.
Veronica Hamilton-Deeley, the Brighton coroner, used his inquest to demand better care for the elderly.
She summed up Mr Hounslow's treatment at Miles Court Nursing Home in Brighton, East Sussex, as "lamentable" and said she feared thousands of pensioners nationwide were suffering the same fate.
Mr Hounslow, 85, had suffered from vascular dementia since 2005 and needed round-the-clock care. He was admitted to Miles Court on April 7 and died on May 16.
Mrs Hamilton-Deeley said he "was treated like a parcel in the last few weeks of his life with insufficient emphasis placed on his wellbeing and care".
"There was a catalogue of incidents leading up to Mr Hounslow's death, all of which are examples of gross mismanagement at this nursing home," she said."
