And what is to be done to the people that run these Homes, pay their employees the Minimum Wage, then expect them to work antisocial hours and unpaid overtime, launder their own uniform and fine them for minor infractions of Company Policy? Then expect them to shower 4 people in 20 minutes.
Diddy Squat, that's what.
Don't get me wrong, nothing excuses the behaviour exibited, but it might be worth while considering how many of those "Attendants" got there.
Having seen the program, it makes you think as to what the world is coming to. Here we had a case of a whistle-blower who tried his hardest to make contact with the management and the regulator, and he was totally ignored.
There is no point in the regulator or the management of these homes stating that they are very sorry, because very sorry is a total blank word when you are or have been abused, possibly as a daily event, as shown in the program.
All to often it is becoming more easy for people to falsify records, and again it showed it in the program. There is no point in the regulator stating that everything seemed well, on records alone, when a whistle-blowers comment are totally ignored.
All the people involved should be in investigated, and that should include the regulator and his staff, plus the management and staff. And if need be, the appropriate actions taken.
I would also suspect that this is by no means an isolated case, but happens only to frequently and daily in some establishments. There are some very caring people out there, and I have known a few who have worked in care homes and similar establishments. But how can you expect some of these more caring people to cope, when they themselves are perhaps being bullied?.
