Inspectors found there had not been enough improvement made after the home was rated Inadequate and placed into Special Measures following an inspection on 9 and 12 October 2015.

The CQC found care records were not complete or up to date and there was no evidence that people’s views and aspirations were taken into account when care records were reviewed.

Regulators further found that all medicines were not stored safely as well as discovering gaps in medication administration records.
