    Record numbers of care homes faced criminal action last year after standards fell to unacceptable levels.
    The official health watchdog was forced to fine and prosecute an average of three care providers every single week after they broke the law.
    The Care Quality Commission took ‘criminal enforcement action’ against no fewer than 159 care homes in 2018/19, the organisation’s annual report revealed.
    That total is up 10 per cent on the 144 actions taken the previous year.
    Criminal sanctions are only taken when failings amount to a ‘serious risk to a person’s life, health or well-being ‘ or where serious failings continue despite repeated warnings.
    The stark figures illustrate how England’s care system is creaking under the pressure of inadequate funding.
