HSE warns carers as BUPA lands fine for training failures

HSE is warning carers and care home operators to ensure they follow the correct training and procedures for moving and handling elderly, frail or disabled patients.

It follows the successful prosecution today (3 September) of BUPA Care Homes (CFH Care) Limited, which was fined £15,000 and ordered to pay £10,500 costs by Wakefield magistrates after an 80-year quadriplegic fell from bed whilst being dressed by a lone, inexperienced care assistant.
