Home must act on standard
9:41am Wednesday 11th July 2012 in News
THE Care Quality Commission has recently inspected a care home in Old Town and found that one of five essential standards was not being met.
The CQC publishes reports each week on inspections of health and social care services all over England. This week’s report includes Quarry Mount Care Home, in Old Town, which is a care home without nursing, for people with dementia and physical disabilities. It cares for up to 32 adults over 65.
The report states that the service was taking insufficient action to monitor the quality of service being provided and to identify potential risks relating to the health welfare and safety of service users and others who may visit the home. This was judged to have a moderate impact on people using the service.
The care home was found to be meeting all other essential standards.
A CQC inspector said: “People living in the home told us they felt safe and were well treated by the staff. People said they were treated with dignity and respect and were satisfied with the personal care they received...We have asked the provider to send us a report within 28 days of them receiving this report, setting out the action they will take. We will check to make sure that this action has been taken.”
