Residents have been moved out a Glasgow care home after a court ordered the interim suspension of its registration.

The Care Inspectorate announced the move at Rowandale Nursing Home in Glasgow which took effect from midnight yesterday.

“We have taken this legal action to ensure people experienced an improvement in their care following serious concerns raised during an inspection. The suspension of the provider’s registration will allow for transition to alternative care arrangements.

“A further hearing is expected in due course.”

The Scottish Herald reported home deputy manager Kenneth Macmillan previously commenting: “We regret to inform you that our lovely care home was not able to sustain financially due to the COVID outbreak of last year.

“Despite having new leadership management in place last year in September and their investment of time and money for the wellbeing of residents and staff, we were not able to sustain this care home.

“The care home residents will be missed and we are trying our best to relocate them to new care homes with the help of stakeholders and wish them all to have a safe departure.

“We will be co-operating with all the agencies in order to ensure the safety and care of the residents are looked after.

“The management tried their best along with the staff members to save this lovely care home.”
