Regulator prosecutes Liverpool care home over safety


continued Also Steve Ford - who, if any was the Registered Manager? Was this a home that like quite a few others was running for some time without a registered manager? If so, it needs reporting and put on record. The fine might be no more than the money saved on not having a Registered Manager. If homes are getting away with not having Registered Managers for a substantial length of time, we need to know and Jeremy Hunt ultimately needs to be held responsible for such a failing. If there was a Registered Manager, was he/she NMC registered or not? If so, are they suspended pending investigation? Or, if not, what action or not, is being taken there? These things need reported and put on record. Omissions can have as many ramifications as actions. If we are failing our vulnerable people because the government's laws and guidelines, or inadequate funding or powers for the CQC inspections, permit a profit-making system which condones neglect of the vulnerable in our society - with some NHS and LA personel complicit in this - then this needs included in the report, otherwise it more of a written bit of gossip than an educative report.
