Tomorrow the Care Quality Commission publishes its first dedicated review of privacy, dignity and nutrition in both care homes and hospitals. The Dignity and Nutrition Inspection Programme found that while most older people are having their needs met, a number of hospitals and care homes need to make improvements. It highlights the fact that often small changes can make a big difference to people’s experience of care.
