so very very sad and sickening.

keepingupwiththejoneses Tue 31-May-11 21:56:33

I agree! I can't say anymore as I just too upset! My little boy has Autism.

GypsyMoth Tue 31-May-11 21:57:02

only caught last 20 mins showing Simone.....bloody horrific!

maristella Tue 31-May-11 21:57:12

i couldn't agree more, repulsive

i have no words sad [anger]

tomhardyismydh Tue 31-May-11 21:58:45

keeping I have been a care worker for 20 years and had a sister with Sn who sadly passed long ago, but I just cant imagine your fears.

smudgethepuppydog Tue 31-May-11 21:58:57

Shocked and horrified. I wok with children with autism. Not all carers are like those staff, in fact the vast majority aren't.

maristella Tue 31-May-11 22:01:31

that is so true smudge there are so many fabulous caring carers out there.

those in panorama are a serious minority, but how many people have their suspicions but turn a blind eye? just awful

smudgethepuppydog Tue 31-May-11 22:06:24

I cried, how could the CQC do nothing?

smudgethepuppydog Tue 31-May-11 22:08:18

I feel for that poor mother, her dd tried to tell her but her mum told her it couldn't be happening because they weren't allowed to treat her like that. how must that mum feel now.

tomhardyismydh Tue 31-May-11 22:10:57

I dont understand how the secret filmer could have carried on witnessing/filming that. that kind of treatment could have put that poor girls life at risk, surely he should have intervened called the police or anything.

screamingskull Tue 31-May-11 22:13:26

I only caught the last part about Simone also. I have just sat and bawled my eyes out, those poor children and their parents what an absolute nightmare.

Arseholes (still too nice a word to describe them) should be bloody jailed angry

Nojusticejustus Tue 31-May-11 22:17:17

Omg so so shocked, upset and angry by what I saw !

Can't believe anyone could treat another human being like that, let alone people as vunerable as them.

eve34 Tue 31-May-11 22:20:11

I am so sickened.
I have worked in care for over 30 years and never seen anything like that in my life.
They should be shot, there is no reason to treat anyone like that. Just can't understand why people think it is ok to let it happen and join in. WTF.

socialhandgrenade Tue 31-May-11 22:24:54

Yet another example of how private companies do healthcare so much better than the NHS...can't wait for Cameron's expansion to allow any willing provider to provide services to the even more vulnerable people

griphook Tue 31-May-11 22:25:43

Didnt see all the program but what is cqc

tasmaniandevilchaser Tue 31-May-11 22:28:03

just heard on the news 4 of them have been arrested, YES!

devonshiredumpling Tue 31-May-11 22:28:12

i work with people who have much the same problems as those shown one major difference in our approach is that our service users are in charge of their own lives in their own homes you would not know where our homes were and the majority of ou service users have jobs and the like i am therefore disgusted beyond belief that this bed practice is still going on and want our organisation to go in and help these people

devonshiredumpling Tue 31-May-11 22:30:50

grip the cqc stands for the care quality commision and is a body that oversees all care providers in the uk and should make sure that they all basically do their jobs right

tomhardyismydh Tue 31-May-11 22:30:53

care quality commission griphook

exoticfruits Tue 31-May-11 22:32:30

I have just seen a clip on the news-I'm not sure that I could have watched more-I was appalled.

beesimo Tue 31-May-11 22:35:33

Just to let you know the police have just served arrest warrants on 5 of them according to BBC

I hope they were watching themselves on Panomara and I hope when the polis knocked they shit themselves.

reelingintheyears Tue 31-May-11 22:36:04

I worked and trained as an RNMH in a large long stay hospital 25 years ago.

It was featured in the silent minority film.

I never ever witnessed anything remotely like the scenes shown in tonights Panorama.

The hospital i trained at was closed 18 years ago in the 'care in the community' programme and the residents were moved out into private care homes,some were run by former domestic staff who had no professional qualifications and just wanted the status of being in charge aswell as the monetary gain.

If some of those 'carers' have been arrested then i applaud the journalist who made the film.

Kitsilano Tue 31-May-11 22:36:12

Good news beesimo. It was utterly horrific.

smudgethepuppydog Tue 31-May-11 22:36:51

CQC=Care Quality Commission the body that's supposed to oversee adult social care.

tomhardyismydh Tue 31-May-11 22:48:25

i have witnessed and reported miss treatment, nothing even comparable to what was seen here, but it has in the past too often been swept under the carpet and covered up in at least 2 out of 3 places I have worked.

All care workers should be registered with cqc, there are plans in the pipeline and lots of safeguarding improvements but I takes these reports to be recorded and investigated unfortunately but as shown on this program it is so very difficult, even this womans mum did not believe what she could be saying as she had confidence in the care her dd was receiving. Unfortunately someone so vulnerable has to have their word against another and with such convincing bullies she stood no chance in hell.

when investigated the wordings on the incident forms should have been investigated on their own merit as they where very unproffessionaly recorded and should have flagged up bad practice at the least.
