ENFORCEMENT action has been taken against nursing home Princess Lodge Care Centre by the Care Quality Commission after severe failings were exposed in the care it is providing.

The Curie Avenue centre, which is run by national firm Life Style Care, was inspected on July 10 and found to be failing to meet all five of the standards it is expected to meet.

Warning notices, a last resort used by the CQC for breaches in regulations, have been served on the care home, which was given until last Saturday to file an action plan for transforming its practises.

The inspection was unannounced and inspectors said it was carried out after they had received concerns people were receiving care which was neither safe, effective, caring, responsive nor well-led.

Among the findings, inspectors said: “The service was not safe. There were not sufficient numbers of suitably qualified, skilled and experienced staff to carry out the regulated activities.

“People who used the service were not protected from the risk of abuse because the provider had not taken reasonable steps to identify the possibility of abuse and prevent abuse from happening.

“We found, people were not always supported to eat or drink enough to maintain their health. Staff had not always received training to meet the needs of people living at the home.

“Care did not always take account of people's individual preferences and did not always respect their dignity. People were not always spoken to in a way that was respectful or caring.

“People that had lost significant amounts of weight had not been referred to a dietician and care records did not always show the most up-to-date information on people's needs and risks to their care.”

The CQC said the matter had been brought to the attention of both the commissioning and safeguarding teams at Swindon Council, which had now joined with the efforts to raise standards at the home.

Princess Lodge is yet to respond to the report.

Places like this should be closed down and criminal negligence charges filed against the owners.

If owners knew they were likely to face their business being summarily closed along with them spending some time in prison, then maybe they'd get their act together in the first instance.

Unfortunately many of the staff that these places often employ are ill-suited to the profession of caring, but it can be difficult to get good staff for the low salaries that are frequently paid (read as "owners prefer to make bigger profits than to pay higher wages for quality staff").

Many of the staff walk past my house to work. There aren't many British people, and theyre usually jabbering into their phones in a foreign language. I can imagine there are a lot of communication issues. I hope to god I don't end up in a home.

If everyone actually knew the true cost of one resident per week to stay here ... some would blow their tops?

So go on then tell us how it all works????

But agree with others, far too many are in it just for the money and don't "care" for or about the residents or the staff for that matter. The problem with making the penalties too harsh it that some would be scared to go into the business at all causing its own problems of lack of beds in an ever expanding need.

There seems to be more and more of these awful stories as more homes are investigated.
When care industries are profit driven this will happen, contracts are given to lowest bidders to ensure highest profits.
The fact they were given over a month from when they were issued warning notices and nothing was done shows the contempt these people have for residents. I wonder if it is a franchise or will the parent company face any form of disciplinary procedures?

Anyone employed in care homes should be adequately trained , paid a decent wage and speak English (thats not racist -its common sense. )

What is the Lead member for Adult Social care doing about these premises.

We appear to have regular reports in the press about poor service etc. It is very worrying for people who may need care and their relatives.

The Lead member has a duty of care, to ensure that Adult Social Care is adequate and safe in Swindon.

If the checks were adequate and frequent, none of this would be happening.

So lead member who ever you are, get on with your job.

Maybe we need to take a hard look at ourselves and ask how money can be saved. Tens if not hundreds of £billions are spent on those with self inflicted illnesses, injuries and disabilities every year and yet still we moan the NHS doesn't have enough money. We can do something about it if we want to, but clearly we are far too selfish to take any sort of responsibility for ourselves and see the health service as some sort of bottomless pit of money.

I am so glad that something is finally being done about this home, having called the police once, the home itself twice (they hung up), the cqc and the council on numerous occasions, along with meeting the care home manager and a member of the council and finally writing to my MP about an appalling scene I witnessed as a neighbour in March, (where an elderly man was hanging his legs out of a third story window). I was patronised and ignored on countless occasions with all parties ignoring what was clearly a safeguarding issue and incompetence if not abuse. It is very sad.

House--do come down from your high horse and face some reality in these matters.
We do have a wide selection of problems in todays society that need addressing it is true. We do not have councillors anymore as we have elected councillors that are bound by council (unelected) officers that make the decisions which by law the elected councillors have to agree to regardless of merit or public opinion.
Yes there are several councillors on this site with pseudonyms who try to steer the arguments spouting rubbish and arguing with themselves to make a point.
Many of the chronic illnesses have increased mainly because of poor quality healthcare in the community as the hospitals simply push them out long before they are fit to cope at home and their illness fully diagnosed by pumping medication through them rather than tackling the problem.
When someone can answer why my 92 yrs old diabetic relative who smoked unfiltered cigarettes from 12 yrs old and walked on artificial legs died through gangrene I might accept the evil of smoking. Likewise obesity can be caused by imbalances in the body--not just by pigging out.
I do hope you also realise unburnt diesel fumes are far more toxic than most pollutants. Folk are living longer but in poorer health--emphysemia and copd on the rise--yet smoking has gone down-how strange. You are just a whinger.

The reason I ask if you use other log ins is because you post exactly the same nonsense that Ringer, ChanX, Sandy whatever its calling itself now. That log-on also avoided topics raised and invented its own arguments irrelevant of questions of issues brought up the same way you do.
Those log-ons were also frequently bigoted in their comments so you can see why I find comparisons.
Your massive sweeping generalisations lead me to think you just say things for shock factor? Chubby Brown and other idiots do exactly the same. Its childish but does happen allot if people dont pay attention to you when you talk, you shout and stamp your feet.
Rather than looking to help those that are not as fortunate as you, you seem to rather enjoy highlighting differences between what you have and what others do not.
Social responsibility is important to me and is part of my mission statement as a business as I see it you can either look down on people and complain that its all in a terrible state or you can do something about it. I was particularly interested in Wiltshire Autism project in order to help young people get a better grounding in life, yet you wanted "them" to be moved out of town and you "certainly wouldnt want them near you".
I can appreciate its much easier to just complain and remain ignorant to how so many people find themselves in trouble through no fault of their own but I would suggest just keeping quiet and staying in your corner with nothing positive to say.
Apologies if posts are disjointed from time to time between children, pets and working this comments section is further down the pecking order.
If you are still having trouble understanding I will attempt to address the gaps in your knowledge but there is only so much I can do.

Any way and anywhere you can fit in some racism you seem quite happy. I can only surmise from your comments in relation to the proposed house for autistic adults you were also be as callus to the elderly.[/p][/quote]Can I have that again in English please? ;-)[/p][/quote]Are you sure your old log in wasnt Channel X? Its just the level idiocy involved reminds me of previous conversations. Are you sure your not just a nimby wannabe snob?[/p][/quote]I don't normally respond to provocative comments but you seem lonely and in need of conversation. I'm quite happy to admit I'm a nimby - aren't we all? I'm also not a wannabe snob, I probably am a snob. Isn't that awful to want to live in a decent society, without no hopers spoiling it for others! I like to socialise with like minded, working people who contribute to society. I like to live in a nice, clean, house. I don't smoke, swear at my kids or spend my weekends traipsing around our dire town centre, or Chavsda. Isn't that awful?! Doesn't that make me a bad person?!?![/p][/quote]Sorry totally forgot about you. No the argument you invented and points raised were not the ones I pointed out were they?
