Hidden footage of elderly abuse to be shown in BBC documentary
From a Guardian Article
Footage of an Alzheimer's sufferer being beaten repeatedly by a member of staff at a care home will be screened on TV on Monday night. The clips claim to show an elderly resident being manhandled by carers at Ash Court Care Centre in Kentish Town, north London, last year. The footage, which will be aired on BBC's Panorama, was caught after Maria Worroll's daughter Jane hid a camera in her room. [...] The documentary says that one evening's footage, filmed in June 2011, shows a male carer striking Worroll six times on the face, arms and abdomen. She was subsequently transferred to a different home. The industry watchdog, the Care Quality Commission, awarded the care home an "excellent" rating in July 2009, two years before the attacks.
