CARE home staff have been accused of holding a patient down and giving her a Covid vaccination against her will.
Two workers have been suspended amid claims the woman was restrained while the jag was administered through her clothes. A source said: “I’m worried about what is going on and I am worried it will be hushed up.”
TWO members of staff have been suspended at an island care home amid allegations of a resident being held down and vaccinated against her will.
And the Care Inspectorate warned that unless there is marked improvement at Millport Care Centre it will cancel the home’s registration.
The centre, owned by Sanctuary Care Limited, is registered to provide care for up to 27 adults with learning or physical disabilities.
An insider at the centre on the Isle of Cumbrae claimed she witnessed three members of staff pin a woman down while a fourth ordered a nurse to give her the Covid jab through her clothes.
The patient, believed to be in her 50s, has mental health issues.
