A health watchdog has branded a Sheffield care home ‘inadequate’ after it found failings on safety, responsiveness and management.
The Care Quality Commission has criticised Haythorne Place care home on Shiregreen Lane after an inspection on August 26.
A report published by the CQC on October 26 found that the home was rated ‘inadequate’ in areas of safety, responsiveness and management and inspectors reported that staffing levels were also an issue.
The report read: “The provider had failed to ensure that there were sufficient staff deployed to meet the needs of people and that staff received the appropriate training to enable them to carry out the duties they were employed to do.”
Two other areas were classed as ‘require improvement’.
The report also found concerns about residents’ care and the management of certain medicines.
The CQC added they found five breaches of the Health and Social Care Act.
The home is run by Roseberry Care GB Ltd, which runs a number of care home in Sheffield, including Dalewood View in Woodseats. This home was also branded ‘inadequate’ after an inspection on May 19 this year.
Donna Lyons, operations director at Roseberry Care Centres GB Ltd said: “It came as a bit of a shock. We were inspected when the manager was on annual leave.
“We are now working with our contractors and the CQC to pull the home where it needs to be.
“We have rectified the issues that were raised and we are now waiting for the CQC to inspect us again and we hope for a better outcome.”
