Mum has been in care for a couple of weeks and is actually surprisingly settled. However I am concerned that there is often periods of time with no staff in the communal lounge where mum spends her day. there are usually 6 residents in this room and another 7 who are permanently in their rooms bed bound. two carers and cook at weekends plus manager on weekdays but she spends lots of time in office. When the room based residents need care there is nobody in the communal area. There is one resident who throws her hot drinks and overturns her table which could be dangerous. I am going to express my safety concerns tomorrow but wonder if this is normal practice and staffing level? Is it considered safe practice to leave a room unattended like this?
