Tales of the Uninspected

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

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....

A couple of minutes later one of the care workers tripped over this hose and fell hard face down, I asked her if she was alright and she said just shaken but at least it was not one of the residents. The whole thing looked like a diaster scene from a health and safety training video

I was struck by how grateful bedridden residents were to see a passerby, many wanted a bit of company so desperatly it was sad to witness....

The overpowering smell of urine was present throughout the whole home..........

I was shown the main lounge where I was told activities took place, there were two care staff sat talking in one corner and one resident asleep in a chair. The carer showing me around saw the clock and in an embarrassed tone told me activities were cancelled that day,
