Nyree Ellison Anjos alerted staff at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital when she saw the larvae wriggling near a feeding tube attached to her mother's nose. Christine Ellison died two days later, but the family is satisfied the maggot incident had no bearing.
The hospital has apologised to the family saying it was "an isolated and rare occurrence."
"The incident was incredibly rare and we took immediate steps to prevent it from happening again. "We have always been commended for our high standards of cleanliness and hygiene and we take any incident such as this extremely seriously."
A statement from the Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust said: "We would like to offer our sincere apologies to the family of Mrs Ellison for any distress caused by this incident.
