Fourth senior NHS worker suspended after care home investigation

A FOURTH senior NHS employee has been suspended at a learning disabilities home in North Staffordshire.

The staff, including clinicians and managers, had been involved in the Bucknall centre where 20 adults with severely challenging disorders are cared for.

Three of the suspensions happened in February and the fourth was confirmed at yesterday's public board meeting of Combined Healthcare which runs the four-bungalow centre, pictured.

And nursing director David Pearson revealed that the regime of care called Contemporary Active Rehabilitation (CAR), which started more than two years ago at Chebsey, had now been suspended pending an investigation into it.

The clinicians suspended are very strong advocates of the CAR model which the CQC has eulogised over and found to be safe.

My comment: "the CQC has eulogised over and found to be safe" OOPs! More evidence that the Care Quality Commission is not fit for purpose?
