Oakdene Care Home in Sleaford received a watchdog rating of inadequate

Sleaford's Oakdene Care Facility

A nursing home has been put under special supervision for failing to deliver safe and efficient care.

After receiving complaints, the Care Quality Commission (CQC) visited the Oakdene Care Home in Sleaford in January.

In terms of people's care, support, and outcomes, the CQC claimed to have discovered "widespread and significant shortfalls.".

A request for comment has gone unanswered from the house, which is now considered inadequate.

According to the CQC, staff training, risky handling and moving, bed rails, and cleanliness were among the issues that prompted the inspection.

The emergency buzzer system was not always audible, according to the report, and staff members lacked sufficient written instructions or training to carry out their duties safely.

Additionally, it stated that residents ran the risk of being hurt by faulty hoist slings and becoming entrapped in bed rails.

According to the report, people were put at risk for infection spread because staff members didn't always note why medications were given out and the home wasn't always clean.

Inspectors noted inadequate service oversight and a failure to take "timely and effective action" when risks were discovered.

The CQC reported that Oakdene Care Home, which was previously rated as good, recently hired a new manager.
