CQC Report Sparks Improvement in Wymeswold Care Home

CQC Report Sparks Improvement in Wymeswold Care HomeAfter being rebuked by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) for demeaning the essential standards of quality and safety when caring for the elderly, the Wymeswold care home has taken significant steps to meet up with the set standards.

It has been reported that the report, published in May, had revealed a range of loopholes prevalent in the Wymeswold Court, a care home owned by Southern Cross Limited.

Aiming to abide by the CQC, fundamental changes are reported to have been made related to care and staffing. Tracie Bailey, Area Manager for Southern Cross Healthcare, said: “A new deputy manager has been appointed and all staff has received re-training on key areas, plus support and supervision to address any of the concerns outlined in the report”.

A lot has been done to build association with local GP and district nurse in addition to escalating recruitment for the care home in order to rope in quality health care professionals.

It has come to light that the local authority inspector has been satisfied with the steps being taken so far. Meanwhile, the care home is keeping close contact with the local authorities, residents and CQC so as to ensure that all the recommendations are being met on time.
