No happy ending for Bronte care home


Bronte Park care home in Haworth, West Yorkshire has closed its doors shortly after being placed in Special Measures by the CQC.

The home, which was run by Bronte Regency Healthcare Limited, was closed after being rated Inadequate this month following an inspection by the CQC (see West Yorkshire care home placed in Special Measures).

A Bradford Council spokesperson confirmed the home had been closed after a number of concerns were identified by the CQC following an inspection carried out in April and May.

Inspectors found the service, which provided accommodation and personal care for up to 28 people,  had “declined significantly” following a previous inspection in February, which rated the home Requires Improvement.

Issues raised included poor care record keeping and inadequate staffing levels which meant that the service was not able to effectively deliver personalised care.

The report also revealed that residents were routinely woken by staff from 5am.

Debbie Westhead, Deputy Chief Inspector of Adult Social Care in the North, (pictured) said the level of care provided by the service was unacceptable.
