Four Seasons care home comes out of special measures


A Four Seasons care home in Nottingham that was rated Inadequate three times in six months has come out of special measures. Charnwood care home, which can support up to 88 people, was upgraded to Requires Improvement following an inspection in November. The CQC said: “During this inspection the provider demonstrated some improvements have been made, but the provider was still in breach of regulations.”

The regulator said Four Seasons had acted effectively to reduce some of the risks identified in its last inspection, citing the example of protection people from the risk of falls.However, the latest inspection identified breaches in relation to how the provider acted to reduce people’s risk of developing pressure wounds or being injured from falls.

The CQC added: “We will request an action plan from the provider to understand what they will do to improve the standards of quality and safety. We will work alongside the provider and local authority to monitor progress. We will return to visit as per our re-inspection programme. If we receive any concerning information we may inspect sooner.”
