Organisation Abuse (sometimes referred to as institutional abuse) is neglect and poor care practice within an institution or specific care setting such as a hospital or care home or relating to care in a person’s own home. This can range from a one-off incident to ongoing ill-treatment; neglect might also occur as a result of the structure, policies, processes and practices in an organisation
The Teeswide Safeguarding Adults Board (TSAB) are hosting a ‘Spotlight on Organisation Abuse’ campaign this February. In TSAB’s Annual Consultation Organisational Abuse is highlighted as the least well-understood form of abuse, therefore TSAB wants to increase people’s awareness and ensure that they know how to spot any concerns and how to report them.
You can find out more about Organisational Abuse and how to report it by visiting the TSAB website or by viewing this leaflet
