    A rest home has been found to have failed an elderly man in its care

    A rest home has been found to have failed an elderly man in its care


    The man was transferred to hospital from Armourdene Rest Home in Hamilton, with a fractured hip after a fall.

    He died a few days later.

    The man's sister-in-law was concerned about the care he received, including the management of his fall, and complained to Health and Disability Commissioner.

    Deputy Commissioner Rose Wall says Armourdene refused to provide the relevant information including the man's clinical records.

    She says as a result, it breached the Code of Health and Disability Services Consumers' Rights.
