England’s Care Quality Commission (CQC) has issued three formal warnings to the registered provider of Hollybush Care Home in Warrington, UK, to make urgent improvements to standards of care.

It follows an unannounced visit by CQC inspectors to the Hollybush Care Home in uly 2011, which was part of a responsive review of compliance to see if improvements had been made since a previous inspection two months earlier.

Inspectors were concerned about risks of receiving care, risks of abuse and risks associated with the unsafe use and management of medicines at the care home.

CQC regional director Sue McMillan said it was the view of Warrington council that insufficient progress has been made in addressing the issues at Hollybush Care Home.

Consequently, the council is identifying suitable new homes for the residents who are living at Hollybush Care Home.

”The CQC will continue to share information under our safeguarding arrangements to ensure that any action taken is timely and proportionate,” McMillan said.
