A DARFIELD care home which provides care for people with a learning disability has been told it ‘requires improvement’ following an inspection.
Pennine View, based on Ferrara Close, was the subject of an unannounced Care Quality Commission (CQC) inspection on January 30.
The home, which provides personal care and accommodation for up to two people with learning disabilities, received a ‘requires improvement’ rating.
The report said: “The inspection was prompted in part due to concerns received about a closed culture, staff training and management.
“We have identified four breaches in relation to safe care and treatment, medicines management, staff training and oversight and governance at this inspection.
“We have made a recommendation about the review of fire safety procedures and the management of records relating to consent and capacity.”
A spokesperson for the home said: “The safety and wellbeing of the people we support is always our highest priority and we welcome the scrutiny that comes from the Care Quality Commission.
”We were pleased to see that the CQC inspection team recognised that staff provided kind, caring, person-centred care and support and that our colleagues communicated with people in ways that met their needs.
”In terms of the required improvements identified in this report, we have already formed and implemented a robust action plan.
“This plan is being directed by a strengthened leadership team and includes a complete review of governance, quality assurance processes and staff training.
”We continue to work closely with the CQC, and our commissioning partners, and we look forward to evidencing the improvements that we continue to make in the weeks and months ahead.”
