Long Term Care Inspectors May Use Hidden Cameras

Hidden cameras and mystery-shopper exercises may form part of a revamped inspection regime for care homes and domiciliary care in England next year. New adult social care chief inspector Andrea Sutcliffe said she wanted to explore the role such techniques could play in uncovering abuse and neglect. But she admitted their use would have to be balanced against the need for privacy and dignity in such settings. The move will be considered ahead of the launch of a new system next year. The rest of the story is HERE. From next autumn, services will be given an Ofsted-style rating of outstanding, good, requires improvement or inadequate to mirror the system being rolled out for hospitals. Confidence in the regulation regime has been shaken, but we have turned a corner” The inspections will start in autumn 2014 with the aim that each of the 25,000 care homes, nursing homes and domiciliary care agencies will be inspected by March 2016. The CQC can issue warning notices, fines and even close down services if they are failing.
