Organisational abuse

Organisational abuse includes neglect and poor care practice within an institution
or specific care setting such as a hospital or care home, for example, or in relation to
care provided in one’s own home. This may range from one off incidents to ongoing
ill-treatment. It can be through neglect or poor professional practice as a result of the
structure, policies, processes and practices within an organisation.
