34675031706_a8e268c583_b.jpg?profile=RESIZE_400xReport criticises ‘appalling’ error of discharging untested patients from hospitals

Advising hospitals to discharge thousands of patients into care homes without knowing if they had coronavirus was a “reckless” and “appalling” policy error, a Commons report has said.

Discharging about 25,000 patients to free beds was an example of the government’s “slow, inconsistent and at times negligent” approach to social care, said the cross-party public accounts committee (PAC) said.
