Winterbourne View nurses jailed
I think we need to wait to see what else transpires as it may be that further action will be taken against the management and CQC. It certainly should be. I have no problem with the premises being used again but management of the premises should be given to a competent, reputable and honest company, (if there is one), all the staff scrutinised and if necessary sacked and new people employed. The residents who were subjected to the abuse should still be given the option to stay with new staff or move to a properly managed and kind and caring new home. We have to remember that the facilities look good so if the staff can be found to look after residents then hopefully, the future residents would have nice and caring workforce and pleasant surroundings in which to live. No doubt a name change might be helpful too. CQC and other review bodies need to be scrutinised too. I hope there is a huge review and unannounced visits to all nursing homes whether for learning disbilities or for the elderly as I reckon this is not an isolated situation. Good practice should be implemented and enforced (if one can), as I also feel that there must be very good places too.
