Nursing homes which have failed to provide adequate care for residents in the past will be targeted as part of a new inspection regime for private and state-run homes.
Inspectors from the Health Information and Quality Authority (Hiqa) will raid homes which previously were found to have disproportionate levels of death in care. They will also target nursing homes that were the subject of recurring complaints from families and residents or had inadequate staff numbers.
