Muckamore Abbey Psychiatric Intensive Care Unit still closed
The Belfast Health Trust has confirmed that the Psychiatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) at Muckamore Abbey Hospital in Antrim remains closed.
The ward was closed temporarily before Christmas because of staff shortages.
It also found there was a culture of tolerating harm.
The Belfast Health and Social Care Trust has confirmed that 19 staff are currently suspended at the facility.
- Five hospital patients assaulted by staff
- Trust apologises following suspensions
- Muckamore Abbey 'doesn't deserve hospital title'
In a statement, the Belfast Health and Social Care Trust said: "The PICU ward at Muckamore Abbey Hospital remains closed temporarily to ensure safe staffing levels across the site.
"The contingency plans we have put in place have been effective and we continue to closely monitor the situation."
It has further been confirmed that the families who have relatives affected have now received individual copies of the safeguarding report which was leaked to the BBC.
