When the Care Quality Commission visited Ascot Nursing Home - Hartlepool unannounced on 8 and 11 November 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 Mr Ariyanayagam Uruthiraneson telling him that he must improve in the following areas by a set deadline.

  • Regulation 9, (Outcome 4): Care and welfare of people who use services The service was failing to ensure people were protected against the risks of receiving inappropriate or unsafe care or treatment.
  • Regulation 10, (Outcome 16): Assessing and monitoring the quality of service provision The service was not protecting people against the risks of unsafe care and treatment by not effectively assessing and monitoring the quality of service provided.
  • Regulation 20, (Outcome 21): Records The service was failing to ensure that appropriate records were kept.

CQC inspectors will return unannounced in due course to check whether the required improvements have been made. For more details of the findings from the inspection in November 2013. Read the full report here.

If the required improvements are not made within the 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 national standards.
