A Liverpool care home has been put into special measure after its CQC ranking dropped from ‘needs improvement’ to ‘inadequate’.
Wavertree Nursing and Care Home acknowledged its condition at the time of the CQC’s arrival. The report said: “We spoke with the provider and the home supervisor and they were very transparent and told us that they recognised that the home needed to improve and that they were committed to the work required.”
In addition to ‘safety’ the home was marked as ‘inadequate’ in the ‘well-led’ section. The report cited the home’s lack of management as one of the reasons for the rating, having not had a registered manager in place since March 2015.
The body has put two enforceable actions in place, to instate a registered manager and to provide safe treatment equipment.
The home, which offers 46 beds, was under capacity at the time of inspection hosting only 38 residents.
