The CQC, Care and Quality Commission inspected a care home recently “in response to concerns that had been shared with us about standards of care” where it found “a number of serious issues”.
The CQC deputy chief inspector of adult social care, Malcolm Bower-Brown, said police and Leicester City Council had been informed of their investigation and a report publishing their findings and recommendations would be available, “as soon as possible”.
Following the revelations. the residents of the disgraced care home will be given alternative accommodation while the investigation is ongoing to ensure their safety and wellbeing.
Mr Bower-Brown continued: “We appreciate the anxiety this will cause for some residents and their families and are working closely with the city council to ensure the moves to new homes are handled as carefully as possible, to safeguard the safety and welfare of residents.”
Four arrests have been made following the investigation into the ill treatment of vulnerable patients at the home, many of which are over 65 and either physically or mentally disabled.
All four arrests were women ranging in age from 46 to 61, who have been bailed pending further enquiries.
