Scabies My mum has been in a care home for 6 months and has had Scabies twice! She is currently being treated for scabies at the moment, along with the other residents of the home and also visitors. The spots are causing her a lot of distress and she is scratching all the time, despite the application of Calamine every day. I have raised my concerns with the manager and the PCT, but I am appalled that this could happen a second time. I would like to take my complaint further....but where?? Would the Public Health Dept pay attention and what could they (or any other official body) do, to ensure this does not occur again. Somebody should be monitoring this and ensuring it doesn’t happen again. Any thoughts please.
