Bupa’s Hatfield Peverel Lodge care home in Chelmsford has been taken out of Special Measures by the CQC.
The CQC found “significant improvements” had been made at the home following an inspection in June 2016 which found multiple breaches of the Health and Social Care Act 2008.
Ash Khan, Director East region Bupa Care Services, said: “We are pleased with all of the changes we’ve made in the home. We’ve reviewed all of our residents’ care plans and increased employee training which has helped create a positive environment in the home.
“Our team will continue to work to improve the high quality of care that we expect for our residents.”
Bupa said it had implemented a number of measures following feedback from the CQC in February 2017.
This has included putting measures in place to help identify any potential issues earlier.
More staff have been recruited to the home and a deputy manager has been appointed to support its new manager and nurses and clinicians with their development.
The CQC’s latest report said “residents, their relatives, and staff felt comfortable to share any concerns they may have with us and are confident they would be acted upon”.
