Ursell: ‘pleased the penny has finally dropped for CSCI’

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

The Registered Nursing Home Association (RNHA)has welcomed what it calls “a long overdue acknowledgement” from the Commission for Social Care Inspection (CSCI) that there is a link between the level of resources invested by public bodies and the quality of the services that care providers can offer.

This follows publication of a new CSCI report on the quality of dementia care in England, which reviews the outcome of a “themed inspection” of 100 care homes across England, and in which CSCI says that inconsistencies in the funding of care homes is a “major underlying problem”.

RNHA chief executive Frank Ursell said his association would carefully study the recommendations in the CSCI report about ways in which the care of dementia patients could be improved. “Whether someone with dementia is being cared for at home, in hospital or in a nursing home, there is no doubt that the task presents a number of challenges to the carers involved,” he said.
