Man hospitalised from fall after application for place in Dundee care home ignored

02 March 2019 – Evening Telegraph

Social care bosses were told to apologise to a woman after requests to put her ailing dad in a care home were ignored.

Staff at the Dundee Health and Social Care Partnership, based at the city’s Dudhope Castle, put the man in sheltered housing despite the request for a more supervised setting.

Shortly after he was moved into the sheltered accommodation, the man – named only in case documents as Mr A – was involved in an incident and hospitalised.

He was then finally discharged to a care home.

Mr A’s daughter – named as Miss C – complained to the HSCP and later to watchdog the Scottish Public Services Ombudsman (SPSO).
