A police investigation has been launched into the death of a resident at a Derby nursing home.

The probe follows the death of a man at Normanton Village View Nursing Home, which is run by Rushcliffe Care Group, the Derby Telegraph reported.

Detective Constable Richard Wilson, of Derbyshire police, said: “There is an ongoing investigation into the death of a man at Normanton Village View Nursing Home. No arrests have been made.

“The nursing home have been fully co-operative with our inquiries.”

A spokesman for Rushcliffe Care Group added: “As there is an ongoing investigation into an incident which is unsubstantiated we cannot comment further at this time.”

A CQC inspection of the home in September last year, which was prompted by the man’s death, found the service to be Inadequate.

The CQC said that information about the incident had raised potential concerns about management of choking risks.

The report said: “Following the death of a person from choking, management had put processes in place in order to ensure the risks of this re-occurring were addressed.

“We saw staff on the unit where the person had died were taking correct actions in line with these processes. However, we found food left unattended on another unit which put people at risk of avoidable harm.”
