A "chaotic" private nursing home in Kerry was slated by health inspectors for its poor hygiene in the midst of a Covid-19 outbreak, with rooms not being cleaned and staff failing to recognise symptoms of the virus in elderly residents.

Oaklands Nursing Home in Listowel, which repeatedly failed to meet nursing home standards in recent months, struggled to contain an escalating outbreak of Covid-19 that ultimately claimed the lives of nine residents and left most of its staff out sick or isolating.
