Questions over standards of care in nursing homes

The Public Services Ombudsman has severely criticised the people who are in charge of inspecting care homes across Wales and ensuring standards for some of our most vulnerable elderly people.

It follows a lengthy investigation into the case of an elderly woman who died three years ago. The watchdog says that the Care and Social Services Inspectorate's investigation was so narrow that 'serious failings had not been identified.'

Tonight Age Cymru is calling on the Welsh Government to 'urgently investigate and address failings in basic care.' Owain Phillips has tonight's top story.
