Ethel was admitted into a nursing home following an a lengthy spell in hospital. Ethel couldn’t get around due to problems with her hip and following a previous fracture after a fall in her home.
Ethel is also diagnosed with dementia but refuses to accept the diagnosis. The Local Authority moved Ethel to a nursing home but did not identify a DOL would be required, nor did the Managing Authority apply for a DOL until almost a year after Ethel had been at the home. Ethel does not want to stay at the home but wants to return back to her flat, and has continued to request to return back home. A RPPR was appointed once Ethel was placed under a DoL and went to visit her to find out her views.
Read how the RPPR ensured that Ethel’s rights under the Mental Capacity Act were upheld and provided independent representation.
