Incident 3
A 90-year old resident misses her daughter very much. She rarely visits

Incident 4
The mother of a member of staff has rung up saying that her daughter
will be unable to come to work because of the accident she had at work
yesterday. She is likely to be off for 4 or 5 days. When you look in the
accident book there is no record of it and nobody on the staff seems to
know what happened!
Incident 5
A visitor has complained about a live cat being allowed on the premises.
She says that it brings in disease and should not be allowed anywhere
near the elderly residents as it can do them a lot of harm. She has
threatened to go to the authorities about it if nothing is done to get rid
of the cat!
