Dementia patients at risk as care system struggles

by professorbillwinlow on 18 March, 2013

The Care Quality Commission has warned that people with dementia are being put at risk because the health and social care system is struggling to cope. The CQC said that inspections of thousands of care homes in England revealed that failings in care were to blame for cases of severe malnutrition, fractures and many other avoidable conditions. The watchdog added that too many men and women with dementia had to be treated in hospital for wounds and infections for which care home staff were to blame.
