Professor Ruth Northway, professor of learning disability, was interviewed for Ireland’s RTE News network about the allegations of abuse at Mayo care centre
An undercover RTÉ Investigations Unit report broadcast on Prime Time showed some residents at a unit of Áras Attracta care centre in Swinford being force-fed, slapped, kicked, physically restrained and shouted at.
Professor Ruth Northway said says staff appeared to be taking pleasure in exerting power over one resident, in the scene that shows her being denied use of the bathroom.
