agency staff going from home to home spreading the infection, staff having to use bin bags for protective clothing, and now this enforced solitary with people being confined to their rooms. It is SHAMEFUL that an advanced, wealthy country like ours could treat its vulnerable elderly like this.
Where is your evidence that Agency Staff is spreading covid?
They have to test for covid, the results have to be registered. This is a legal requirement.
where are nursing home where staff have to wear bin liners? The only additional requirement for the use of PPE, Gloves and Aprons are masks.
PPE has to be provided by nursing homes as part of infection control, this is a legal requirement under the health and safety. When inspected by CQC this will observed.

Update: Our friend is home and recovering. He has no recollection at all of his time in hospital.He was in there for seven days and it was very traumatic for him. He went into a care home for two weeks after being in hospital to help him to recover. He remembers his time in there where at the end of the day they did the best they could.
He’s happy now he is home and looking forward to his ninetieth birthday next month.
I've just seen an article on Yorkshire live news about a couple of carers in Flamborough mistreating an old girl in a wheelchair. Punches to the face and dragging about. Disgusting behaviour, but you can only hope it comes back and bites them on the R-Send. link to article

I cant get get my head around waiting 8 hours for an ambulance. You see it from time to time...had to wait xx hours for the ambulance in agony. If someone i knew was in this position, in agony - therefore nothing to lose, they would be scooped up into the back of the truck and whisked to hospital. A&E would have to accept them, speeding up any treatment they needed. People can bleed to death with broken hips/pelvis, so time is of the essence.
