Undercover video exposes cruelty to elderly in care home
Undercover filming by BBC's Panorama has revealed shocking cruelty against elderly residents of a care home in Essex, England. Residents at the Old Deaney, Braintree, were slapped, handled roughly, taunted, mocked, ignored and neglected. One member of staff has been sacked, while seven more have been suspended pending an investigation. [BBC, 30 April] Anthony Ozimic of SPUC commented: "This scandal is only one of many cases in which elderly and ill people in England have suffered appalling institutional abuse. Laws and policies which permit euthanasia will only add to the prejudice that many in society have against the elderly and the disabled.
