Doe v. Medlantic Health Care Group, Inc. Kimberly S. Shuert Rasmussen College Doe v. Medlantic Health Care Group, Inc.

Charlotte Cowen Task B Research and Account Identify two reports on serious failures to protect individuals from abuse. Winterbourne View Hospital Abuse In june 2011, a serious incident occurred known as the winterbourne view hospital abuse. It was a private hospital in South Gloucestershire which was owned and operated by Castlebeck. It was all broadcasted on television in 2011 in a panorama investigation which expose the physical and psychological abuse which was suffered by people who has learning disabilities and challenging behaviour within the hospital. The local social services and the English national regulator, Care Quality Commission, had received various warnings but the mistreatment continued.
But the management decided to admit residents with higher level of dependency and additional needs and ‘simply could not cope’.

Another resident was found in similar condition and died the same day. Shortly after three other residents died in different care settings.
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. She died as a result of unimaginable abuse, described by the Home Office pathologist as the worst case of abuse he had seen in his career. Research the Victoria Climbie case. Focusing on the following factors, discuss the role played by social services in this case: *Organisational processes such as: communication, recruitment and selection. *Factors impacting on personnel, such as: stress, job clarity and delegation.
Mr. Ard wife made several contacts to the nurse and there was no response in a timely manner. A nurse eventually came and instead of checking the patient out thoroughly medication for nausea was given to him. The wife notice that her husband symptoms was getter worse and tried paging the nurse in which did not arrive until an hour and 25 minutes later. The nurse realize that the patient condition was threatening and called for a code of medical attention, however, Mr. Ard did not survive and died shortly afterward. The patient wife filed a malpractice law suit of wrongful death against the hospital facility and was awarded judgment of the negligence by the nurse in which the case was later appealed by the hospital.
Principles of safeguarding and protection in health and social care Section 4 – Task Four care workers have been sentenced for abusing elderly residents at a care home in Lancashire. The abuse took place from May 2010 to September 2011 at Hillcroft nursing home in Slyne-with-Hest near Lancaster. They were charged with ill-treatment and wilful neglect of a person with lack of capacity under the Mental Capacity Act 2005.

The court was told one man had his foot stamped on deliberately and another was nearly tipped out of his wheelchair.
HMM One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest There are four central characters in One Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest. Three of the central characters are patients in the mental institution and one is the nurse. None of the patients received the necessary treatments, which shows us culture views on unordinary people. McMurphy, starred by Jack Nicolson, is a rebel, he was sent to the work force because of battery and illegal gambling, and he also was accused of statutory rape, which he says she was completely willing. He acts insane to get into the mental institution in order to get out of jail.
They punished Hester for sleeping with another man when she was under the assumption that her previous husband was dead. She was completely surprised when she
Identify two reports on serious failures to protect individuals from abuse. Write an account that describes the unsafe practices in the reviews. 1.

The HSE release (note yrm163112) details poor training standards and lack of staff knowledge as the main factor leading to Mrs Beals death, this resulted in a £183,000 fine. The death came about despite various government advice notifications in the area of safe use of bed rails, another instance that has helped to build a negative perception of the care industry. One of the most highlighted cases in recent times was Winterbourne view which was aired on panorama ‘under cover care’.
