A Four Seasons spokesman said: “We are cooperating with the authorities in an investigation into the circumstances that led to one of the residents of Lisnisky Care Home regrettably becoming unwell and being admitted to hospital, on the recommendation of a GP who was promptly called by the home. Four members of staff have been suspended in line with our normal precautionary measures.

“It would be wrong to make any comment or to speculate about the investigation while it is ongoing. However, we would like to give an assurance that we are taking appropriate measures to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our residents, which is always our first consideration. These include an increased level of monitoring and management oversight.”

Police said their investigation was ongoing.
