One in three nursing homes in England 'fail safety'

One in three nursing homes in England 'fail safety' More than a third of England's 4,000 nursing homes are failing on safety, according to inspectors.

Drug errors, lack of staff and falls were highlighted by the Care Quality Commission in its review.

Safety was also a major issue in other services for the elderly and disabled, including care homes and home help.

The CQC said the failings were "completely unacceptable", as it unveiled the full findings of its new inspection regime for the care sector.

The new "tougher" system was launched in 2014, amid concerns problems were going undetected. BBC News
