Elderly treatment amounts to torture6th March 2012
The Care Quality Commission is failing to protect elderly people from suffering from "inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment" according to the Equalities and Human Rights Commission.
The EHRC said in a report that elderly care was regularly "undignified and humiliating. At its most extreme, abusive, cruel and degrading treatment is similar to torture." The report adds: "Police sometimes failed to take seriously allegations of repeated violence that were so severe the allegations reached the threshold for inhuman and degrading treatment under Article three."
