Murder squad detectives are investigating after a man died from non-accidental injuries at a care home. Ivan Emmanuel Campbell, 73, was a resident at Victoria Nursing Home in Anson Road, Rusholme, which cares for people with complex mental health needs. A post mortem has ruled that he died from severe internal non-accidental injuries. The M.E.N. understands his injuries could have been caused by a single blow. We can also reveal that: The home was slammed by the government’s care watchdog last October for failing to do enough to protect people from abuse. Staff and residents are being quizzed by GMP’s major incident team to try to establish how Mr Campbell’s injuries were caused. Extra staff and carers have been put in place at the home by NHS Greater Manchester to support worried residents. Mr Campbell, who had two daughters, was admitted to hospital on April 16, but died the following day. It is understood that Mr Campbell was an outpatient at Manchester Mental Health and Social Care Trust and was being assessed every six months by a psychiatrist. He is believed to have been suffering from mental health issues, including possible dementia. The home, which cares for up to 21 people, was last inspected by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) in January. Inspectors made a routine visit and found that it was meeting all the expected quality and safety standards. But at the previous review, in October 2011, the CQC had major concerns that people were not being protected from poor care and treatment. They blasted the home, saying ineffective management was putting residents at risk, and expressed concerns that staff were not reporting safeguarding incidents to the local authority for investigation.
