Care Campaign for the Vulnerable concerned over a rise in complaints regarding loved ones with dementia and basic care needs not being met

27th January 2020

https://www.carecampaignforthevulnerable.com/news/679/a-third-of-care-homes-failing-to-meet-acceptable-standards-a-shocking-/

CCFTV is not surprised to learn that one in five care homes are not currently meeting the minimum standards. Regrettably, we receive factual and anecdotal information every week that confirms far too many homes continue to provide poor quality services. Families consistently raise concerns with us about unexplained injuries, neglect, repeated falls, poor hygiene, low staffing levels and issues with the quality of food and lack of fluids. Whilst we accept the CQC regulator is attempting to provide a high level of scrutiny, we would nevertheless continue to remind the general public that care homes generally receive no more than two visits per annum.

Those visits will each likely last two working days, so in a full year, a home might be inspected for four days only. We remain concerned that without daily safety monitoring many of the ‘good’ rated homes may have significant issues that are simply unknown because the inspection isn’t undertaken with sufficient frequency. It is sadly our view that minimum standards are likely not met in many many more homes on an everyday basis but no awareness exists of such and as a consequence, vulnerable people continue to suffer in silence. Care Campaign for the Vulnerable will continue to call for safety monitoring to ensure visual monitoring is available to support the assertions of ‘high-quality care’.
