Elderly woman, 92, hospitalised after care home incident

Police, CQC and the care home investigated

A 92-year-old woman is in hospital after allegedly being assaulted by another care home resident in Spilsby.

The incident happened on March 31 at Eresby Hall care home in Spilsby, with a resident taken to hospital ten days later.

The resident who is believed to have carried out the assault is currently waiting to find a different care home, according to the Care Quality Commission.

A spokesperson for the CQC said: “They are currently waiting to move to alternative nursing accommodation that would be better suited to their needs.”

The Orders of St John Care Trust, managers of Eresby Hall, said: “The incident took place on March 31, with an individual going into hospital ten days later.

“We do not believe the reason for their going into hospital was a consequence of the incident on March 31.”
