CQC warns provider that it must make improvements

When the Care Quality Commission visited Laglin Lodge unannounced on 19 September 2013 and 30 September 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 a formal warning to Mrs P E Modile telling them that they must improve in the following areas by 15 November 2013:

  • Management of medicines People were not protected against the risks associated with medicines because the provider did not have appropriate arrangements in place for the recording, administration, disposal and storage of medicines.

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 September 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.
