I believe that was in my constituency. I will not name the nursing home but it was closed down under section 64 of the Health Act 2007. In that situation, measures put forward by HIQA and the HSE were not enacted. Why was that particular case so severe the HSE had to go to Bray District Court to get an order to close down that nursing home? Why would a situation like that arise?
