From BBC News. The mother of a severely disabled man who is a patient at Muckamore Abbey Hospital described a seclusion room her son was placed in as “a dark dungeon”.
The woman said she was horrified that in 2017 the room was being used for people with learning disabilities. Families want a public inquiry to investigate allegations of physical and mental abuse at the hospital.
The Belfast Trust said it “apologised sincerely” for behaviour it said fell below professional standards.
