MUSLIM staff at a care home refused to let patients eat bacon sandwiches for breakfast, a watchdog has found.
They also refused to help their clients buy pork pies, the Care Quality Commission said following an inspection.
Bradford Council was ordered to improve services at its Wagtail Close home for disabled people after inspectors said care workers restricted patients’ right of choice and denied their personal dietary preferences.
“The person said they had raised their concern with senior staff members but nothing had been done about it.”
The home caters for people with physical disabilities, learning disabilities and brain injury
Inspectors also found training was outdated and that there was no system to overview accidents.
A Bradford Council spokesman said: “There has recently been a change in the registered management arrangements at Wagtail.
“An improvement plan has been drawn up which will urgently address the issues raised by the recent CQC inspection.
“All Wagtail Close care staff have been reminded that their own lifestyles and cultural preferences should never influence the person-centred support they provide to service users.”
