STOP PRESS: Mimosa meltdown!!!!

Strong rumours reverberating on the Blogger’s newswires say that the manager and long-term secretary at Mimosa Healthcare’s ailing Kingsmead Lodge Nursing Home in Shire walked out earlier today this month. (This is what happens when you spend the afternoon at Christmas parties and then write up secondhand stories from someone else who’s spent the afternoon at a Christmas party. Ed.)

The manager was brought in earlier this year to “turn the home around” after the police launched an investigation following allegations of abuse from former staff at the home in February and the coroner announced an inquest into the death of a resident at the home during the summer.The inquest is expected to be heard in January.

The home also featured in a BBC Inside Out West documentary on Monday, while just last week the Care Quality Commission (CQC) claimed they had found evidence of “institutional abuse” in residential care homes in Bristol.

    Well it seems that any mangaer with a conscience walks out on Mimosa. There have been some excellent Area Support Mangers there that have not lasted long under Cotman and Butlers regime of bullying. There are some managers there that suck up to them for the money but they are of the same ilk as Cotman and Butler so standards don`t improve. Their strapline should be “Where money matters”

    Of course Sharon O`Connor has been brought in to try to instil confidence in the shareholders. However she previously worked in the ailing Four Seasons Scottish Care Homes so may not have the credentials that are needed to turn round Mimosa considering their Sheffield, Doncaster and Barnsley homes have also had their problems. What was their common denominator? Cotman and Bultler of course!!!
