In the latest Health Information and Quality Authority (HIQA) report on the care home, the inspectors found that, in just one year, there were 117 instances of unauthorised absences by teenagers.

The report records that inspectors were informed that on occasion during these unauthorised absences "the young people were involved in inappropriate and high-risk behaviour".

The unauthorised absences ranged from one hour up to two days and 18 hours.

The inspectors state the HSE "should establish a system of tracking, reviewing and analysing unauthorised absences".
