Majority of deprivation of liberty cases unreported, says report

Limits placed on the freedom of people with dementia or brain injuries are not being properly recorded, according to a healthcare regulator.

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) said almost two-thirds of applications to restrict a person’s liberty were not reported to it, as required by law.

The CQC said it could signal a lack of understanding or compliance with the Mental Capacity Act.

In some cases, patients had their freedom removed for months at a time — via redwolf.newsvine.com
