Winterbourne View report calls for ban on physical restraint

Comment

The CQC are obsessed with paperwork and not patients. They seem to judge a patients care on the quality of the paperwork. I don't think they even look at patients themselves. The patient could be dead in their bed but if the paperwork was up to date the care would be deemed 'excellent' I think this is how apalling patient treatment is missed. The general condition of patients both physically and mentally needs to be assessed not just the paperwork. I believe documentation has reached such a ridiculous level that it is done in preference to patient care so as not to fail CQC inspections.
