Nursing Homes Under Fire

Wednesday, April 6th, 2011

Nursing homes in the UK are finding under fire as new inspection standards go into place. Staff working for nursing homes in the UK will have to register with the newly created “Health and Care Workers Professions Council” and will be required to undergo testing.

Homes that don’t comply with the new procedures run the risk of losing all of their public funding – a risk none are willing to take in this economy. Not only are nursing homes now worried about sound proofing and internal standards of care, but they now have the government eyeballing them as well.
