Minister To Change "Lex Sarah"

Published söndag 19 april 2009 kl 11.33

Workers in old people’s homes should be allowed to report poor conditions and mistreatment of the residents anonymously, according to Social Welfare Minister Maria Larsson.

She says too few reports of bad practices are being sent in, and worries that it is because nurses and other staff are afraid of reprisals from management if they raise the alarm.

A law in Sweden, called ”Lex Sarah”, means that carers are obliged to tell the authorities if they suspect malpractice, and the minister says she wants to amend the law to guarantee anonymity, and hopes more would then dare to come forward.
