A mice infested home in Liverpool has been shut down by the CQC following inspection.
Emergency powers were used to close Bentley Care Home in Toxteth this week after the discovery of mouse droppings in dining areas and kitchens, the Liverpool Echo reported.
A CQC Spokesperson said: “CQC’s register of providers has been amended to urgently remove the registration of Bentley Care home that is operated by Prasur Investments Limited.
“This action was taken following an urgent decision by the CQC to keep people using their services at Bentley Care Home, Liverpool safe.
“CQC are working closely with the local authorities that have residents in this home, and Environmental Health Officers to ensure the safety of people using this service.
“This home had not yet been formally rated after Prasur Investments Limited registered Bentley Care Home with the Care Quality Commission from another provider in September 2016.
“A report from the latest inspection will be issued in due course.”
Bentley Care Home is run by suspended GP Dr Srinivas Dharmana whose surgery was shut down after being rated ‘inadequate’.
Alternative accommodation is being found for the home’s 48 residents who include those living with dementia.
The home was rated ‘requires improvement’ under its previous management.
