Case Studies

Our Grandmother suffered unwitnessed injuries in a care home and our family deserve answers

Added on 30th June 2020

''Our 91 years old grandmother Violet sustained unwitnessed injuries in her care home. Our grandmother told her family she was 'pushed' but the care home says she suffered a fall. With no visual evidence available to prove what happened we say that's not good enough''.

A daughter contacted Care Campaign for the Vulnerable asking for help to raise awareness to the unwitnessed injuries their grandmother sustained and no visual evidence to prove what exactly happened.

''Our grandmother suffered horrific injuries in her care home and we can't get social services, the police or CQC to listen. The care home she was previously living at told me that they found her on the floor. They failed to even contact me, her power of attorney - only calling me three hours later and informing me she was ok but they were calling an ambulance to take her to hospital. I asked how it happened and they told me she was found between the bedside cabinet and the bed. But looking at her room and the position of the furniture we say that's impossible. Our grandmother told her family and social services that she was 'pushed'.

''Violet was very frightened.''

The CQC has not responded to us and just told us that it was being investigated. We have witnessed many of the vulnerable residents with black eyes and marks on them. We are genuinely worried about other vulnerable residents that live there. Our grandmother spent a week in the hospital recovering and we moved her to another care home. But we want this investigated properly and not brushed under the carpet. Our grandmother has dementia so even if she were pushed her account will not be evidence because of her dementia diagnosis. That's why families need safety monitoring in care homes to protect those living with dementia who can't speak out''.

CARE CAMPAIGN FOR THE VULNERABLE STATEMENT

CCFTV is supporting this family after they contacted us distraught after their beloved grandmother suffered unwitnessed injuries in her care home. The family say they have 'evidence of neglect' at this care home and now their grandmother has moved from this home they want answers to what happened and to ensure other vulnerable residents are safe and well cared for. Care Campaign for the Vulnerable has permission from the family to highlight their grandmother's injuries and so to raise awareness for the care sector to adopt safety monitoring in the care of vulnerable residents. We are now fully supporting this family. All authorities have been informed.
