I am sure this question must have been asked before but thought I would ask. Is there a minimum requirement for staffing levels. The staff to residents ratio? When Mum went into the home the floor she was on was not full and also the residents that were there were more self sufficient than those there now. Recently they have had two admissions who are mobile and go around waking up other clients that are asleep or sitting next to them and touching them or playing with their hair/clothing. This results in the residents that are usually quite content to respond and become irritated and shout. There are I think are about 15 residents with 3 staff but if one goes off for lunch then it its only 2 though sometimes cover is provided from somewhere else but not always and if a resident needs help in their room it leaves one person less. It didn't seem an issue before but with the new people it has become so. My Mum is quite entertained by it for now but I am concerned it will eventually irritate her too and cause problems.
