Stats get released, I write about them for ITV Meridian. Which care homes across the South are up to scratch and which need work because care for the elderly is really important…
Eight care homes in the South have been rated as inadequate and thirteen require improvement, according to the Care Quality Commission this week.
“If we find that a service requires improvement, we will expect them to provide us with a full plan setting out how they will address the issue. We will share our findings with local commissioners, and we will return in due course to check that they have made the required improvements.
“Whenever we find a service to be Inadequate, we will consider taking further action on behalf of the people who use the service. Providers of those services should take the publication of the inadequate rating as a signal that immediate action is required to improve the service”
