Tough new criteria should be introduced

THE behaviour of those two women (Herald July 7) employed as carers has the flavour of the surreal nightmare or possibly a scene from one of those mesmerisingly dreadful British comedy films.

Seriously it’s easy to be glib yet there are cruel spiteful people out there who should never be employed as carers.

Who knows what goes on when a resident of a care home is scared to speak?

It isn’t only the residents who need watching, it is the carers. Tough new criteria should be introduced.
