Government faces potential lawsuit over care home policies

Daughter of care home resident threatens government with lawsuit unless it admits to wrong-doings regarding discharge of coronavirus victims to carehomes.

Yes, it’s heartbreaking.

We lost two relatives 10 days apart (aged 92 and 93). One was in a care home and the other following a last visit died in hospital. Both were put down as having Pneumonia. The care home was later positive for covid-19. Their daughter had to bury her parents together.

So sad!!

As soon as I read the instructions about people having no say when they were discharged from hospital, I was desperately worried, and sadly, those worries have now been shown to be totally justified.
