Elderly resident was left severely bruised from a fall.

An Aberdeenshire care home has apologised after a 78 year old resident fell from the toilet while suffering a seizure at Sunnybank Care Home, Cruden Bay.

The residents family claims that no-one from the care home called to let them know about the incident.

Meallmore Ltd, which runs the care home, said the lack of contact was “unacceptable”.

In the post on face book, her family did not find out about the fall until nine hours after she had been taken to hospital, and even then they were only told after calling Sunnybank themselves.
She also said her grandmother, who suffers from dementia and epilepsy, had previously broken both her legs in separate incidents due to being left alone on the toilet.
