‘Tired’ care home remains in Special Measures


Nada Residential and Nursing Home in Cheetham Hill, Manchester has remained in Special Measures following a CQC inspection in June.

The CQC told the service’s providers they must make improvements to protect the safety and welfare of their residents.

Debbie Westhead, Deputy Chief Inspector of Adult Social Care in the North, said: “No improvements had been made to the building since the last inspection. The environment was tired and in need of refurbishment. Recommendations from an environmental health audit to replace cupboards in the kitchen had not been actioned.”

Inspectors found continued breaches of five regulations with regard to fire safety checks, medicines management, the environment, the lack of service specific staff training for the needs of the people living at the service, staff supervisions, lack of activities for people living at the home and a lack of quality assurance systems used to improve the service provided by the home.

The CQC added: “We are currently considering our options in relation to enforcement action and if not enough improvement is made, we will take action in line with our enforcement policy to begin the process of preventing the provider from operating this service.”
