Regulars here will know that countering MSM and opposition party lies about care home deaths is a daily task in TuS so here is more evidence that the blame for outbreaks and death lies with the owners and not the Scottish Government.
Care home inspections recommenced in February 2021. From then until this month, there have been 21 full inspections.
None were rated ‘Very good‘ and only one was rated ‘Good‘ on ‘Infection control practices support a safe environment for people experiencing care and staff.’
15 were rated ‘Adequate‘, 4 ‘Weak‘ and 1 ‘Unsatisfactory.’
Apparently adequate infection control reports might still include comments suggesting not all staff were trained in infection control or that infected waste might be carried through the home for lack of exits.
Is that really acceptable?
So 9 months to a year after the first outbreaks in the Spring of 2020 and this is the state of infection control? Imagine these rating were applied in the inspection of NHS Scotland facilities. BBC Scotland and the opposition leaders would be talking of crisis and calling for heads.
These are, of course, mostly privately owned, for-profit organisations.
