Care Homes Scandal

    The standards of care in the UK care homes continue to shock. BBC Panorama programme Behind Closed Doors: Elderly Care Exposed (Today, 9pm on BBC1) will once again how some residents have neen tounted, roughly handled and even slapped. And while bosses of companies that run them claim that they are doing their best to clamp down on abuse and bad care, by provoding training and having an open whistleblowers line, it is not the first time that such things happen in the UK's care homes. And being a whistleblower is not such a welcome thing, as the bosses try to portrait. </
