Tales of the Uninspected

Welcome to our collection of Reports on Care Homes conducted by Eileen Chubb on behalf of Compassion in Care.

....All the residents looked happy and well cared for, as we went to walk out one lady put her hand out to the carer with me and said " Can we play that game again this afternoon? " It was obvious from the conversation that followed with this care worker and a group of residents that activities had taken place that morning and that such activities were a regular occurrence and greatly enjoyed by the residents....

.....All of the ground floor was extremely shabby with dirty walls and chipped and worn paintwork, several fire doors were wedged open. I was shown a bathroom which contained a stained bath and on a shelf above the bath a pile of very threadbare looking towels, there was very little room between the bath and door and it would have been very difficult for a member of staff to assist a resident in or out of the bath in such a confined space.....

......Saw one member of staff on the first floor who was introduced as the cleaner and who was just going off duty. I was shown a number of bedrooms all of which looked clean, I noticed that the windows were open in most rooms and that the gap was wide enough to get through, which is a concern given that the home is for residents with dementia and who would have little awareness of danger.....

Two people have died in horrendous circumstances in the past and yet nothing is done...

A male resident was sat in front of the TV, he was unshaven and his trousers were heavily stained....

The corridors were so narrow, I was amazed that this building could be used for this purpose, as it could only be descibed as a death trap in the event of a fire.......

There were no staff and in room 122 I saw a male resident wearing only a pad and net knickers laying on the bed uncovered, the window was open.....

I saw this lady was hit three times by the male resident sat on her right....
