Case Studies

Ten unrelated Covid deaths in my Dad's care home - now CQC rated Inadequate - we fear for our loved ones remaining...''

Added on 19th January 2021

Care Campaign for the Vulnerable is receiving an increase in families reporting neglect happening in care homes during the coronavirus pandemic and lack of communication from care home staff on the health and emotional well being of loved ones.

''Our family has some major concerns regarding my Dad's care home. There have been twelve deaths since lockdown, and only TWO were possibly from Covid but they hadn't been diagnosed. We have had loads of concerns about what is going on in the home, and my dad's health, as well as many other residents, have declined massively during a lockdown, but a lot more so in the last couple of months, to the point, my dad is asleep/mostly unresponsive all the time. He doesn't even wake up and open his eyes when being fed, or when someone is physically trying to wake him.

Due to many safeguards being raised, and two of the deaths being investigated, they had a CQC visit and they originally were just going to do a partial check and not a full review assessment, but due to what they saw on their visit, and so many concerns they did a full review, and they have been rated as Inadequate and under special measures. They are only at half capacity due to the deaths, and they weren't allowed to take in any more residents due to the concerns of how it was being run. They failed in every aspect of the CQC review.

The manager who was running the home was given an alternative job as a nurse, as she is qualified in nursing, but we've not been happy she has been allowed to stay on over the last couple of months since the review, although we have been told she's leaving on Friday. We had an interim manager in place for a while, and we were having discussions about our concerns, but we don't feel many things have changed, and he's now left, and we have another interim manager started yesterday until a permanent new manager can start, so there hasn't been a lot of consistency, and we are getting very concerned about our relatives.

We don't know if my dad has just deteriorated hugely and is now asleep and unresponsive and this could be his new level for months to come, or he could be at end of life, but no doctor has been to see him. I requested a visit over a week ago but they said they couldn't go. But a lot of the relatives are hugely concerned about our loved one's huge deterioration, and all the issues raised in the CQC report. We have asked if we as the family can become support volunteers who go in to help feed our loved ones, do some interaction and help with activities to give them stimulation, as they have nothing and are doing nothing with them but we've been told we can't. We don't want to see any more unnecessary deaths happen. Two are already being criminally investigated.''

Care Campaign for the Vulnerable is supporting this family and we will be contacting management, agencies and authorities regarding the family's concerns. Care Campaign for the Vulnerable supports our dedicated care workers and we do not identity care homes but only raise the issues/concerns brought to our organisation.
