Extent of ongoing abuse in nursing homes revealed


Having worked as a HCA since the late 90's I have seen all sorts, In my experience the bad starts at the top and filters down. A good top team and great training are the key to a good care home. Of course the fact that the pay is poor doesn't exactly mean you get the best candidates apply for positions, they often just need work and have no idea what it entails. Often care staff are seen as the lowest of the low, who are thick and unable to do anything else. When people find out I have a degree I am asked why work as a carer?? As if this is below me. I myself want to provide excellent and safe care, like nursing it is a vocation, and I love it.
