Staff suspended from care facility on foot of student whistleblowers

12 staff members have been suspended from a Dublin care facility over concerns around the standard of care provided.

Students from Trinity College Dublin who were on placement made a series of allegations around abusive incidents.

Stewarts Care, which looks after people with intellectual disabilities, says the parents of all service users identified in the reports have been contacted.

The facility, which was formerly known as Stewarts hospital in Blanchardstown, said it has informed the HSE and the Health Information and Quality Authority about the matter.

An investigation is underway.
