HSE tells disabled Wexford woman left in her urine-soaked bed without carer that ‘case is now closed’

A disabled Wexford woman with cerebral palsy and a spinal injury, who was left in her urine-soaked bed without a carer due to staffing shortages in a care company, has received a HSE response to a personal complaint she made through the “Your Service Your Say” system.

Haron Colgan of Shanna Court who has been granted a meeting via Zoom with the Minister of State for Disabilities Anne Rabbitte on Wednesday, June 1, lodged a complaint about her treatment on April 24 when Woodbrook Care which provides her with a service paid for by the HSE, failed to send a carer to her home and she was left lying in bed from 8am the previous night to 4.30pm that day.
