Protecting my mother

Article publication date: 21 February 2011



After 10 years of visiting her mother in nursing homes, Kate Rees analyses the impact of three safeguarding procedures on her mother's welfare. Her experience underlines the finding of the Report on the Consultation on the Review of the ‘No Secrets’ guidance (Department of Health, 2009) ‐ that too often the vulnerable adult, particularly where that adult lacks capacity, is sidelined, and the process works in the interests of the nursing home.
