Documentary lifts the lid on shocking treatment at Braintree care home
9:00am Thursday 1st May 2014 in News
Shocking footage filmed by secret cameras showed a care worker slapping an elderly woman at Braintree’s biggest care home.
In March, the Times exclusively revealed seven staff at The Old Deanery Care Home had been suspended and an independent investigation launched following concerns over the treatment of residents.
A BBC Panorama investigation has now lifted the lid on the catalogue of poor care and mistreatment that sparked those actions.
The programme, Behind Closed Doors: Elderly Care Exposed, was aired last night.
