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

A West Midlands nursing home has been closed under an emergency closure order after the Commission for Social Care Inspection (CSCI) found there were unacceptable conditions in the home. The 63 residents at the 82-bed Richard House in Aldridge, Walsall, have been moved into alternative accommodation by Walsall and Birmingham councils. A total of 28 complaints about the standard of care at the home had been received by the CSCI in recent months.
