An inspection in April and May found that Baybury’s Orchards Care Home was failing to provide care, which was safe, effective, caring, responsive or well-led. The home has been rated Inadequate overall and placed into special measures.

The inspection team found that medicines were not managed safely and there were insufficient staff to safely meet the needs of people living at the home. Staff recruitment procedures did not protect people and environmental safety and infection control procedures were insufficient and put people at risk. Hygiene and infection control was also of a poor standard.

The inspections, which followed previous visits in January 2016 and May 2015, rated the home Inadequate and the provider remains in special measures.

Inspectors found failures to meet regulations in staffing levels and checking records related to fire safety.
