Safeguarding Adults - Organisational Abuse

What is Organisational Abuse/Neglect?

Organisational abuse (sometimes referred to as institutional abuse) is neglect and poor care practice within an institution or specific care setting such as a hospital or care home or relating to care in a person’s own home. This can range from a one off incident to on-going ill-treatment; neglect might also occur as a result of the structure, policies, processes and practice in an organisation.
