Patients strapped to beds in Riga nursing home, shows report
Gailezers has fired its director following revelations of violations

Major violations have been reported at a Riga nursing home whilst its head has been sacked, reports LETA.

Following a report by an individual, it's been revealed customers at the Gailezers nursing home for the elderly and disabled had been unlawfully strapped to beds.

Many fixation belts have been found at the center, giving the impression that strapping was a common practice, the Latvian Welfare Ministry says.

Following the revelations, the nursing home's director Lubova Zaka has been suspended. 

An administrative case has been opened whilst inspections at the nursing home will continue until Jan. 20, 2014.

Riga nursing home Gailezers is a residential care facility for the elderly and disabled persons.

The Welfare Ministry says every local government is responsible for the work of the facilities in the given municipality, unless the applicable regulations provide otherwise. In this particular case, it is the Riga City Council that is responsible for the Gailezers nursing home.
