Perhaps if there is no current legislation that allows the owners/managers and CQC to be prosecuted, then the legislation needs to be reviewed. Perhaps this is necessary not just because of this specific horror, but to ensure greater protection of whistleblowers - if owners/managers and indeed the CQC know they can be prosecuted for ignoring warnings from whistleblowers - and what law it is that would allow this, along with the potential penalties, then that just might be an incentive for them to listen rather than punish/blacklist/brush under the carpet.
