BACON BAN AT CARE HOME: Muslim staff REFUSED to serve patients bacon sandwiches

MUSLIM staff at a care home refused to let patients eat bacon sandwiches for breakfast, a watchdog has found.


They also refused to help their clients buy pork pies, the Care Quality Commission said following an inspection.

Bradford Council was ordered to improve services at its Wagtail Close home for disabled people after inspectors said care workers restricted patients’ right of choice and denied their personal dietary preferences.

The ban on pork products – which also included ham and sausages – was reported to the inquiry team.

The report said: “Staff were not providing support that was responsive to the person’s preferences and were restricting the person’s right to choice.

“The person said they had raised their concern with senior staff members but nothing had been done about it.”

The home caters for people with physical disabilities, learning disabilities and brain injury.

Inspectors also found training was outdated and that there was no system to overview accidents.
