HSE Homes Fail To Protect Residents' Savings

Share this article


A new report has revealed that some HSE nursing homes have failed to record residents' cash withdrawals, leaving them open to fraud.

According to the Irish Independent, nearly ten thousand residents have 120 million euro in private 'nest eggs' left in charge of the HSE.

However, an internal report has revealed that the HSE is failing to fully protect their assets, including bank accounts, pension books, house documents and jewellery.

The report which covers 155 centres during 2016 didn't uncover any fraud, but it highlighted how a lack of staff in some homes means that protocol isn't followed fully.

Justin Moran from Age Action says a more robust system is needed so that people can rely on HSE staff to look after their savings, he also praised HSE staff and acknowledged the 'hard work that they do'.
