When the Care Quality Commission CQC visited Bearwood House Residential Care Home unannounced on 7 August 2013, we found that the service was failing to meet the national standards that people should be able to expect.

As a result, CQC has issued formal warnings to the provider telling them that they must
improve in the following areas by 31 August 2013

  • Regulation 13, (Outcome 9): Management of medicines.

The service was not safely or effectively managing medicines. For more details of the findings from the inspection in May 2013, read the full report here.

CQC will return unannounced in due course to check whether the required improvements have been made. This page will be updated when the findings from that inspection are published.

If the required improvements are not made within a set timescale, CQC has a range of enforcement powers which include restricting the services that a provider can offer, or, in the most serious cases, suspending or cancelling a service. CQC can also issue financial penalty notices and cautions or prosecute the provider for failing to meet essential standards
