A nursing home in the Midlands owned by Trinity Care has been the subject of a four month police investigation following allegations of abuse. A senior nurse at the Topaz Unit at the Worcester Christian Nursing Home has been suspended, according to a spokesman for Worcester police. “We have been investigating claims and one man was arrested and questioned but no charges have been laid against anyone at this stage, although enquiries are still continuing,” the spokesman said. The home has 63 residents ­ 29 of whom are in the Topaz Unit which houses mentally infirm people aged 65 and over. A Trinity Care spokesman has confirmed that an enquiry is underway. “As a company we will not tolerate issues of abuse,” he said.
