The malpractice has been documented by an undercover cameraman and broadcast on the BBC's Panorama Avon and Somerset Police were criticised for not informing South Gloucestershire Adult Safeguarding of all their contacts with the hospital as after 29 calls and nine incidents over a period of nearly three years relating to Winterbourne View, and agreed a pattern should have been noticed.However, investigating officers had "overly relied on people perceived as professionals and experts in their field" at the hospital, for information David Behan, chief executive of the Care Quality Commission, said: "There is much for all the organisations involved with Winterbourne View to consider in Margaret Flynn's thorough and comprehensive report. Dr Gabriel Scally, who chaired the NHS review panel, said that even though lots of different people knew bits of what was going on, nobody put it all together and did anything about it. Anne Milton, parliamentary under-secretary of state for public health, said primary care trusts had spent money "recklessly" putting patients in Winterbourne View. A spokesman of the hospital's owners, Castlebeck Care Ltd, said significant changes had been made within their organisation that included extensive changes to board membership, all new operations structures, strengthened clinical governance and increased staff training and development. "Importantly, we are
Some ideas and theories in science meet with resistance. One of the examples when an idea is meeting with the resistance is immunization. More often children immunization meets with public resistance. As the vaccination of children is parents' decision many decides not to do it.

Unsafe practices in Hillcroft nursing home in Slyne-with-Hest near Lancaster (May 2010 – September 2011): In report it states that nursing home staff neglected, emotionally and physically abused a persons with lack of capacity under The Mental Capacity Act 2000 because they would have no memory of the abuse and they couldn’t report it by themselves.

The student’s parents sued the teacher and board for negligence as they failed to recognize the signs of suicide and failed to contact them. There are many laws that are associated with this case.

The children of Munchausen’s mothers are frequently hospitalized for complaints of a group of symptoms that do not fit any known disease or disorder. As a result of the mother’s reporting of symptoms, these children often end up suffering through unnecessary diagnostic test and procedures, and are sometimes even victims of unwarranted surgeries (U.S. National Library of Medicine, et al. 2011). While there may be strong suspicions of the exaggeration of nonexistent symptoms, the medical team is still obligated to believe the child is ill, especially if the child is too young to speak for himself. Since doctors are compelled to take a parent’s complaints seriously, and since doctors are both expected and required to find the underlying cause of symptoms whenever possible, Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy often becomes an ethical dilemma of whether to treat the child, or disregard the symptoms and report the suspected abuse.

For example, in the inquiry of Victoria Climbié’s case, the failure to follow proper procedure to protect her led to high-profile media attention because the people involved did not do their duty to keep her safe from the abuse she received from her guardians. The lack of communication between her social workers, doctors, nurses and the police was the reason why her guardians were allowed to continue abusing her and caused her death. Communication and co-operation between all the agencies involved in the protection of children and young people is important because this helps to ensure their welfare and to promote their well-being. Another example that has gained media coverage is the death of Baby Peter. The serious case review which highlighted that all those involved with Peter were too willing to believe his mother’s accounts of how Peter’s injuries occurred.
