A care home, which pleaded guilty to health and safety breaches after a resident died in a fall, has been fined £1.5 million.

George Chicken, 76, who had severe dementia wandered through a first floor fire escape door at Rose Court Lodge in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire and fell from the fire escape staircase.

Mr Chicken fell down the concrete stairs and fractured his skull, suffering a bleed to the brain.  He was taken to King's Mill Hospital, but died 48 hours later.

Embrace All Ltd, formally European Care (GB), which ran the care home, had pleaded guilty in July for failing to ensure residents were not exposed to risks of health and safety, while manager Amanda Dean of Derbyshire pleaded guilty to failing to take reasonable care of persons affected by her work.
