Operative word for them is profit
THE Panorama documentary on the horrendous abuse by the so-called 'carers' at Winterbourne View, inflicted on vulnerable people, made me feel physically sick.
I heard the lenient sentences being meted out to the perpetrators of these heinous crimes, six being jailed, the maximum being two years and five given suspended sentences.
What kind of message does that send out?
If this is supposed to be justice for the parents, relatives and friends of the visitors, then the law is an ass.

My heart goes out to all the families concerned.
I know I could never forgive or forget the damage these people have caused.
They have messed up so many lives and how they can sleep at night I really don't know.

I REFER to the ITV programme "Exposure" relating to poor care in nursing and residential homes.
I found the viewing distressing to say the least.
Is there to be no end to this vile, couldn't care less attitude by irresponsible care managers and staff? As it has been said many times the operative word for care homes is profit.
The Quality Care Commission has also been brought into question for not fulfilling their duties for care.
It would appear this authority hasn't got a strong enough bite in their teeth to show the iron fist. So who can you trust? Bristol Council will have to go some way to convince me that the tide will turn and the appalling attitude to vulnerable people will be outlawed in the strictest of terms possible for ever.
I went to the meeting at the Harbourside on October 10 to discuss the new specification for care homes.
I had previously read the entire 58 pages and expressed my view that it was a specification fit for royalty and composed with the utmost dignified care in mind.
But too good to be true, and what would it cost to implement?
I would like to know the views of care managers, support workers and medical people who also attended the meeting.
In 2007 a member of Bristol Council told me she couldn't guarantee my son's safety when in care. I think that sums up the situation.
