DISCIPLINARY action has been taken over two carers after allegations of grossly offensive behaviour at a client's home in Dunfermline.

It is believed a male and female carer, employed by Avondale Care Scotland, were sacked after hooking up in a disabled client's bedroom.

It's understood the incident was captured on video after an MS sufferer set up a hidden camera when he became suspicious of their activity, it has been reported. 

The Care Inspectorate described the incident as "completely unacceptable". 

A spokesperson said: “We have been properly notified of this serious allegation.

“It is completely unacceptable and we have raised this with the care provider who took the right action quickly.

“We ensured the matter has been referred to workforce regulator the Scottish Social Services Council.

“Everyone in Scotland has the right to experience safe, high-quality care which meets their needs and respects their rights.

“Anyone with a concern can contact us on 0345 600 9527, anonymously if they wish.”

Avondale, who have two care homes in Fife, said: "We have nothing to add to what has been said by the Care Inspectorate."

Fife Council commission Avondale to carry out care in the home and believe the right action was taken by the company. 

Fiona McKay, head of strategic planning, said: "We commission services from ACS Care at Home. We are confident that the care provider has appropriately dealt with this incident."
