NI Paper Review: Hospital abuse probe
26 July 2018 – BBC News

A probe on abuse at Northern Ireland’s main hospital for adults with learning disabilities has led to 12 nurses being suspended and a major police investigation – with a further 10 suspensions ‘pending’.

CCTV footage shows staff allegedly striking vulnerable patients at Muckamore Abbey Hospital and pulling them to the floor by the hair.

Recordings apparently also show some patients being kneed in the testicles, while there are claims of ‘unauthorised seclusion’ and adults ‘being left in the dark’ without supervision.
