Non-compliance with Residentical Care Standards: Towards a Risk-management Framework for Preventing Elder Mistreatment 


Aim and Objectives

The aim of this review was to examine publicly available reports of residential care home inspections, which contain evidence of poor standards and poor care practices that may represent a potential or actual risk of elder mistreatment.


The objectives were to:

  • Examine HIQA inspection reports to identify common themes, patterns and trends in the way that residential care homes fail to meet their statutory obligations to provide safe care environments and good standards of care to their residents.
  • Identity factors that can be used to inform the development of a framework in which risk of elder mistreatment in residential care settings for older people can be assessed.
