Abuse scandal firm shuts second home
Thursday 11 August 2011
A second care home owned by a company at the centre of claims of abuse of vulnerable patients is to close. Castlebeck, which owned the Winterbourne View care home in Bristol, where abuse was filmed by an undercover BBC journalist for Panorama, said it was shutting Rose Villa, a rehabilitation centre for adults with learning disabilities.
Four staff at Rose Villa, also in Bristol, were suspended last month after an inspection by the Care Quality Commission while allegations of misconduct were investigated. Castlebeck said it was closing the centre, which has five patients and 30 staff, for "operational reasons".
Winterbourne View, which saw 13 staff suspended over allegations of abuse, closed in June.
