Immediate inspection after the first death found various failings such as pressure mattresses not being used correctly, residents not receiving appropriate care, no system in place for residents in risk or already having pressure sores. This findings highlighted concerns about the standards of care and the home was closed on July 31 and remaining residents moved to different care settings.

She was simply talking to the girl next to her when her surroundings completely changed. She lost consciousness when bookcases fell on her, twisting and breaking her left leg. She wouldn't regain consciousness for another three hours. She would call out for help and no one would come to assist her, causing immense distress. When she was finally rescued, she was placed against an iron lean-to in the street with a woman who had lost a breast.
In 1990 when Schiavo was 26, she collapsed in her home. Oxygen was cut off from her brain, which lead to severe brain damage. Even so, Terri Schiavo maintained a heart beat and was able to breathe on her own. However, the only way she was able to stay alive was with the help of a feeding tube connected to her stomach. After years of living this way, her husband Michael Schiavo believed it would be Terri’s wish, asked that the feeding tube be removed.
Identify two reports on serious failures to protect individuals from abuse. Write an account that describes the unsafe practices in the reviews. 1. For this account I am going to refer to the Care Quality Commission’s (CQC) review of Castlebeck Care after the publicised scandal of patients suffering abuse at one of their care homes; Winterbourne View hospital. ‘The CQC report on Winterbourne View found owners Castlebeck Care had failed to ensure residents living at the unit were adequately protected from risk, including the risks of unsafe practices by its own staff.’ [www.bbc.co.uk] This review outlined the unsafe practices as well as recommendations it has to Castlebeck.
Due to a “catalogue of lamentable administrative, managerial and professional failures”, social workers, police and NHS staff missed more than 12 opportunities to save Victoria Climbie.

Also, “their deaths will be linked to malnutrition.” (Second Thought, p.105) While working in Maine, the Maids the housekeeping service did not allow workers to drink or eat anything on the job. Ehrenreich noticed that each day, her colleague only brought a bag of Doritos
The conspiracy theories behind Marilyn's demise are many. No-one really knows the full truth simply because those directly involved won't talk about it (and anyway most have died by now). It is definitely a fact that there were people present in Marilyn's house on the day and morning of her death. On Saturday morning August 4, 1962, Marilyn was up early for breakfast(grapefruit) having not slept well for most of the night. Apparently she was in bad form complaining about her house guest's (her personal publicist, Pat Newcomb, who had spent the night, woke at 9 A.M.) ability to sleep well while she couldn't.
The daily dosage may vary from 1-10mg/day orally. Alternatively, an initial intravenous dose of 2 mg or 0.044mg/kg, whichever is smaller, may be given. The overdose was not discovered by the nursing home until two days after Drescher was found dead in his bed. State investigators also found that some drugs were missing at the nursing home and could not be accounted for by its staff. Drescher’s death certificate cite chronic lung disease as the cause of death.
One morning without Rosie’s knowledge, the student teacher is asked to remove Rosie’s unhealthy food from her bag from the leading teacher with reason associated to concern for Rosie’s weight and how this affects her health. This action caused Rosie to think that someone had stolen from her and sees her separated from her peers during snack time as she no longer participates in the discussions while eating her sandwich. Over the next few weeks Rosie is unable to participate in physical activity due to breathlessness and ends up hospitalised due to heart complications. I am a firm believer of healthy eating and it angers me to see so many students with lunch boxes that comprise solely of processed, sugary, fatty foods that have no nutritional content day after day. However, in this scenario there are a number of issues that I believe to be inappropriate.
As a result, the patient units were understaffed and health care personnel on day shift were required to remain on their assigned unit until they were relieved from duty. During the course of this occurrence several patients sustained minor injuries from falls out of bed and one patient was given the incorrect medication, resulting in death. The nurse on duty left the hospital to buy dinner at the corner Wendy’s Restaurant. After one year, the families of these patients sued the hospital on behalf of their deceased relatives, and you are one of the parties mentioned in the suit. The hospital refused liability, stating that: the patients who sustained a fall were awake, oriented and experienced no limitation in mobility; the patient who was given the incorrect medication died not from staff negligence, but from an unidentified allergic reaction to a food substance and had no history of allergies.
