Surprise Inspection of Residential Homes

It has been reported that from now onwards the Care Quality Commission would be calling for surprise examination or inspection of the residential care home to make sure that the elder patients are being provided with adequate care.

The government is seeking better care from the nurses and health care workers as in previous reports it have been reported that basic needs of elders are being ignored at the care homes. All the political parties have been seen supporting the step which is also called as “Dignity Code”.

It has been pointed out by the care minister Paul Burstow and his Labour shadow, Liz Kendall that the pensioners are not being provided with the right to decide as to what type of treatment they would like to undertake.

Besides, various charities, politicians and regulators have alleged that at residential homes, the elders are treated as objects and not as humans. Paul Burstow in a letter wrote, “For too long, too many of those people have been ignored….In this era of human rights, too many older people have seen their basic human dignity undermined in situations where they are treated as objects rather than people”.

It is hoped that new code will help in improving the plight of the elders at the residential homes. It has been unveiled that as many as 400,000 people in England rely over the residential homes. Moreover, about two million elders are in need of some sort of care.

In such a scenario, it is important for the government to make sure that the elders are treated well. It has been alleged that the elder patients are sometimes transferred to other health care agencies because of the poor management of the residential homes.
