Norfolk closures

Posted on November 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

Four care homes in Norfolk are to be closed after standards dropped to unacceptable levels. The Commission for Social Care Inspection (CSCI) ordered the closures following an in-depth inspection of 23 homes in the county over a nine month period. So far the names of the homes have not been released. The CSCI has also indicated that, though it found on the whole, that standards were rising in the region, there were some homes that could still face prosecution. According to local media reports the main areas of concern for the CSCI were neglect of patients, low staffing levels, mismanagement, medication errors and administration problems.
