Elsie Inglis Care Home Closed Down for Fall in the Quality of Their Health ServicesFinally, Elsie Inglis Care Home in Edinburgh had to close their care centre, as they were unable to meet the demand of upgrading their health centre within the given deadline. The proprietor of the care home Peacock Medicare had to de-register their organisation.

The care home was charged with inappropriate health service because of death of a woman, 59-year-old, who was unable to survive after being shifted to city’s Royal Infirmary. The death of the woman lead the centre to undergo inspection by care inspectors, as a result they were given an ultimatum to work on their care home centre at Abbeyhill. The Edinburgh City Council declared that the patients were shifted to other nursing homes from Elsie Inglis Care Home.

The police officers were still working over the case. Even the Scottish Government was also expected to look into the case, in between, Spokesperson of Scottish Labour Health, Jackie Baillie, had registered a parliamentary question on the issue. As per Scottish Government, “last night it was essential that older people and their families have complete confidence in care homes. Investigations are ongoing in this case”, he added. “We will undertake to keep Parliament updated as appropriate”.
