Three Care Homes in Nottinghamshire need improvement

Care-home-for-the-elderly-007An inspection of three care homes in Nottinghamshire has confirmed that they are in need of improving their standard of care.

Park View Nursing Home in Radford, St Augustine’s Court Care Home in St Ann’s and Brookside House Care Home in Jacksdale have all received an overall rating of ‘requires improvement’.

Reports from the Care Quality Commission have found that Park View Nursing Home did not have enough staff to support people in an emergency. The nursing home was told to improve its safety and care towards residents. However, they were rated good on their service being well led and responsive.

The inspection which took place back in November found that St Augustine’s and Brookside House Care require improvement in all five inspection categories.

The report for St Augustine’s said ‘staff did not respond appropriately to a person in distress and a person receiving end of life care who was in discomfort.’

Brookside House Care report said that the service ‘was not always safe’ and ‘staff did not follow the safe medicines management and infection control procedures.’

All three care homes will be inspected again to see if they meet the required improvements.
