Wolverhampton care home closes two months after CQC inspection

ruksar care home cqc report

A care home in Wolverhampton has closed after being rated as ‘requires improvement’ by the CQC in November.

The unannounced inspection at Ruksar Nursing Home found that there was a “risk that people were not receiving appropriate care”.

Inspectors said that residents had to wait “unacceptable periods of time” to be served a meal and were not always offered a choice.

The report said: “For example, one person had to wait an hour after other people were served their meals before their meal was served.

“We saw five people waiting for 10 minutes before getting their meals whilst other people were being served their lunches. We saw one person become quite agitated at this and started to try to eat another person’s food.”

Since the report, the ground floor of the building was boarded up and Wolverhampton council – which does not operate the home – confirmed to The Express and Start that it had closed.

The 26 residents have been relocated to another private care home in the city, the news report said.

Ruksar Nursing Home had been running for 18 years after being founded by Jalal Mushtag.

According to the newspaper, Mushtag had also been responsible for running Rose Villa Nursing Home, which closed soon after a CQC inspection rated it as ‘inadequate’. He could not be contact for comment by The Express and Star.
