Strong rumours have been reverberating around the Blogger’s newswires today that the coroner will be opening an inquest tomorrow into the death of a former resident at Kingsmead Lodge Nursing Home last autumn (Blogger passim).
The news might come as a particular blow to Social Services boss Kathy Morgan who confidently fired off a letter to the deceased’s relatives just this Tuesday assuring them that her department had fully investigated this matter – along with allegations of abuse of another relative they have in the home – and everything was fine and dandy.
Kathy’s evidence on oath to the Coroner on the so far undisclosed nature of her investigation into this matter promises to be all-ticket event then.
Meanwhile the Cancer’s report earlier in the week that an 18 year old whistleblower at the home was suspended pending disciplinary action takes a new turn.
Mimosa, owners of Kingsmead, are now claiming that the teenager wasn’t suspended for whistleblowing at all. Oh no perish the thought. She was suspended – like employers would do – for reading a newspaper!
And in a final example of the level of desperate bullshit emanating from this care home, Mimosa dispatched a lawyer to the local Employment Tribunal today to explain that a statement of their case they put in a few months ago, signed by Mimosa Director Barbara Cotman, was inaccurate and they now have a new and completely different version.
It’s like the last days of Rome isn’t it?
