Winterbourne View nurses jailed


Anonymous | 27-Oct-2012 11:34 am The prosecutions of the nurses will, I assume, be under the Mental Capacity Act, and I think you must effectively be 'directly involved' with the patient in order to fall foul of that Act. Senior managers, would I suspect need to be pursued under someting else - I'm not sure if there is a law which would allow for their prosection, or not.
