of a user at the Santa Casa da Misericórdia de Boliqueime home, in Loulé, Algarve, lying on the bed and covered with ants.

Those who filmed the elderly woman also point out that she was tied to the bed, with an open wound, and that her son had already made several complaints to the institution.

This video, it should be noted, was recorded a month before the elderly woman died, and her son is now complaining of mistreatment by Santa Casa de Boliqueime.

“I noticed a lack of care when she entered the institution. When I went to visit her, she was covered in ants and I alerted the home, but they did nothing,” João Queiroz told Correio da Manhã.

Meanwhile, Santa Casa da Misericórdia de Boliqueime has already reacted to what happened in a publication made on Facebook, this Wednesday. “The administrative board of Santa Casa da Misericórdia de Boliqueime, having become aware of the shared video (…) inadmissible and will be relentless (…) in punishment”, reads the statement, where it is also mentioned that a criminal complaint was filed against the person who filmed and posted the video on social media.
