A HUDDERSFIELD care home is at the centre of a police investigation.
The exact circumstances surrounding the probe at the BUPA-owned Lindley Grange Nursing Home on Acre Street in Lindley remain unclear.
But it is thought that detectives are investigating allegations of an incident during one night involving two residents.
The police have talked to staff at the home, but no-one has been arrested.
The care home, which specialises in residents with dementia is open as normal. It operates a whistle-blowing policy for staff who have concerns and the police investigation came after they were alerted by someone who works there.
BUPA is saying very little about the ongoing investigation.
A spokeswoman said yesterday: All our residents are safe and well. We are helping West Yorkshire police.
A West Yorkshire Police spokesman said: A member of staff contacted the police after two patients at the home had had their bedding adjusted during the night.
We are currently carrying out an information-seek at the home to ascertain if there is anything suspicious to this report.
The incident was reported last Monday, but the investigation is still ongoing a week later.
Lindley Grange was last inspected by the Care Quality Commission in an unannounced visit in September, 2008, when the report found the quality of care as good and it was given a two star rating out of a possible three.
At that point the weekly fees ranged from s362 to s650.
The report stated that since the previous inspection the year before: Records showed that all staff have had safeguarding (adult protection) training which provides information on how to protect people from abuse.
All staff have had movement and handling training which will ensure that they know how to move and handle people correctly and safely.
It added: The home has a whistle blowing procedure and staff that were spoken with were aware of the procedure to follow.
Lindley Grange has more than 40 en-suite bedrooms and four lounges.
It specialises in nursing residents with dementia and also offers convalescence, respite and palliative care.
It provides day care services too.
In its literature it states: The homes design provides a safe and pleasant environment that allows residents to walk around freely.
We know how important it is to keep in touch with friends and family so guests are always welcome.
We treat every resident as an individual. For this reason we offer long-term care for those who need dementia nursing care.
It also stresses it has highly trained, specialist nursing and care staff.
Most of the staff are qualified to NVQ levels 2 and 3.
The home also provides activities such as painting, flower arranging, movement exercise classes, seasonally-themed monthly events and regular days out.
The Government recently launched a full-scale inquiry into residential care homes and the Care Quality Commission intends to report by Christmas.
Care Services Minister Paul Burstow said: We are planning to overhaul social care.
The action came after the BBCs Panorama exposed residents with learning difficulties being slapped, soaked and insulted at Winterbourne View, a home near Bristol run by a company called Castlebeck.
Twelve people have been arrested as a result of the inquiry there and the home has been closed down. They are now on police bail.
