A SUNDERLAND care home has reviewed its practices following the death of a disabled patient who fell from a hoist.

Cerebral palsy sufferer Anne Rowell Elliott was in a sling so that she could be hoisted from her bed into her wheelchair at Care and Support Sunderland Limited (CSSL), in Midmoor Road, Pallion, on November 20 last year.

The 63-year-old, who lived at the home for 17 years, was about to be taken by carers to the 
MetroCentre so that she could look at festive lights in the run-up to Christmas.
