HIQA investigates complaints against Dublin hospital staff

Ten members of staff at Stewart's Hospital in Dublin have been suspended amid allegations over the standard of care received by some residents.

It has been reported that an investigation is underway at the care centre for people with disabilities after students on placement made complaints about "neglectful" or "abusive" practices.

They claim some nurses and care staff were not closing doors when clients were showering; some clients were locked out of their bungalows; and some were being spoken about as if they were not present.

The Hospital has said it is working with HIQA to address the allegations and an external investigation team has been put in place.
