Somerset care home closes following damning CQC report

Bay View

Bay View Nursing Home in Clevedon, North Somerset has closed following a damning CQC report.

Twenty two residents are being relocated by the local authority following the announcement this month, the Bristol Post reported.

The closure comes after Bay View was rated Inadequate by the CQC this month following an inspection in June (see report).

A previous inspection in January 2016 had found three breaches of the Health and Social Care Act 2008 relating to staffing, person-centred care and good governance.

The CQC found insufficient progress had been made during its latest inspection noting the provider had insufficient systems and processes for identifying and assessing risks to health and safety, and the welfare of people who used the service.

Inspectors noted the provider had inadequate arrangements for reporting and reviewing incidents and accidents and the risks associated with people’s care were not consistently managed safely.

There was not always sufficient guidance for staff on how to keep people safe because plans contained limited information.

Medicines were not consistently managed safely and people were not cared for in a safe, clean and hygienic environment.

People’s rights were not consistently upheld in line with the Mental Capacity Act (MCA) 2005, inspectors added, and staff were not consistently supported through a regular supervision programme.
