This is a sad story about a care worker who was killed by a mental health patient. He had been staying in accommodation and had a number of convictions – including assault.
However, despite this man’s past and current mental health issues, a single care worker was allowed to approach him to deal with a noise complaint.
There have to be questions asked as to whether this man was in the correct accommodation to deal with his illness and whether is was acceptable for this care worker to deal with him alone.
There has to be the correct procedures in place and the correct accommodation to deal with any patient. It is such a shame that this person lost their lives because of this situation.
