CQC Watch - the absurdity of bureaucratic regulation.
The Party loves to control and nowhere is that more
obvious than with the CQC (Care Quality Commission) whose current leader is a
failure as he comes from the same background as its former great leader Cynthia
“1200 deaths did not register on my radar” Bower in social services. If you did
not go to a Northernshire comprehensive school you will not be aware that in
order to be a social worker you have to be in the same bottom third of such a
school that they recruit NHS managers from.
So dentists and now doctors are to be inspected by a
retarded bureaucracy that is itself under performing in order to bring
standards down to their retarded level. Such professionals in order to make the
grade are usually examined by people far better qualified than they are. A
simple example of how retarded centralized bureaucracy was bought home to one
of the team who recalled a conversation from many months ago from a victim of a
CQC inspection who did not lie down and say I am wrong you are right. So look
at the image above.
This was taken by one of the team on a holiday at a
remote outpost somewhere in Northernshire’s vast hinterlands. Now if you showed
that to a retarded CQC inspector you would probably follow your own gut
reaction which is that is disgustingly dirty throw it away NO-ONE could drink
any water out of that kettle and live. Now if your holiday accommodation was inspected
by a retard unaware of local circumstances you would expect them to fail it
based on such “evidence“ and a moronic tick box mentality.
However if you think beyond the amoeba brain size of
the average tick box this kettle’s appearance might be impossible to avoid.
Large areas of the UK are covered by moor land with a peaty soil. Large areas
of the UK do not have mains water and so other sources are utilized for example
springs or water taken from streams which flow off peat moor land.
The water may be microbiologically pure but will
contain small fragments of peat - think what happens if you garden and split
peat- which even though the water is filtered will be present in the water. A
lot of people have slightly brown coloured water which is safe to drink and we
have even stayed in places where the water has been blue but in both cases was
completely safe to drink.
If you repeatedly heat water in a kettle in the same
way that lime scale forms in hard water areas you will over time get a coating hence the
picture above. Not harmful to health but not nice to look at.
Now back to CQC retardation. We spoke to a doctor in
training who was present during a CQC inspection which had failed their ward.
The reason? Not crap medical care but the CQC botmoron found that there were
clean urine bottles placed on the bedside tables of elderly male patients which
they also ate off. Disgusting you may say so the hospital management removed
The result? Not a massive drop in infection rates as a
result of removingthe clean bottles
but a massive increase in the need to wash bed linen and pyjamas, clean floors
all essential requirements of a CQC “approved” ward which pulls staff away from
real patient care to tick a botmoron’s box. Add inrelatives complaining about patients, sorry their relatives,
sorry CQC clients, who had previously been dry sitting in pools of urine and
wet clothing and think how much time can be wasted by a botmoron.
All this was the result of a CQC inspection which no
doubt improved the “quality” of the “care” provided. After all the boxes had
now been ticked and as a result of an “inspection” and a hefty fee
(page 3) onwards for the privilege of a botmorons’ visit.
the junior doctor to whom we spoke after a lot of aggravation the urine bottles
were reinstated. And all of the care “improvements“ which resulted in the
increase in “quality “of “care” which were dictated by the botmoron CQC
Now why might that be so? Well remember the top of the
tree at the CQC is a social worker and they are in the bottom third of the UK
in terms of academic ability. Their inspectors won’t be as bright and so they
could not put 2 and 2 together to make four while holding their best crayon
they just looked at the box and found it wanting so they signed with their
usual signature a great big X. and they felt epic!
The bottles were on the tables because this was a
geriatric ward full of frail old men who could only walk slowly to the
centralized toilets 2 four bedded ward bays away for there were not enough
staff there to help them. Coupled with the prostate problems they would have
they need to go frequently and with urgency but could not make the toilet in
time. Hence the positioning of the bottles.
Praise be to the Party for ensuring that whenever you
want to improve “care” and “quality” you employ a social worker to bring us all
down to their high standards.
This might be the start of a little series of CQC
watches as it is such a fit agency for purpose is it not? Just watch the news
as it tries to justify its existence but scratch below the stories and it is
No Care no Quality just another Commissariat YOPS scheme for
those who have always failed and that started when they were at school, in
their first jobs which led them to NHS management and where they are today.
Contact Northern Doc:
Northern Doc was once a blog originally written by a group of GPs in Northernshire and expressed their experiences and frustrations of working in today's NHS. The pieces were compiled at social meetings after work and published anonymously in a once free society. Following the Government's Medical Council clamp down on freedom of thought, speech and expression by doctors and our belief that the views of a few doctors DO NOT represent the views of the profession as a whole their views will now be written by and published by a journalist who has previously contributed to the blog by virtue of social ties. Any inference that the word Doc means a doctor is now purely coincidental. This is as of the 22 April 2013.
