‘Truck death’ care home shuts its doors


A care home that was under a police investigation after one of its residents was knocked down by a truck has closed its doors, the Manchester Evening News has reported.  

Nada Residential and Nursing Home in Cheetham Hill was placed into Special Measures in March after a 70-year-old resident was killed by a truck after entering a nearby busy road (see Care home resident killed by truck).

A CQC inspection was launched in March following the death of the resident following the accident in a road just 350 yards from the home.

The resident, who had a Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DoLS) authorisation in place, was killed after leaving the premises unaccompanied.

Following a second inspection in June, the CQC said the home would be closed if drastic changes were not made to the service.

The inspection, which was published this month, described the service as “tired and in need of refurbishment” (see ‘Tired’ care home remains in Special Measures).

Nada Residential and Nursing Home, which was run by Mr Pierre Grenade, was registered to provide nursing care and accommodation for up to 28 people.
