When the Care Quality Commission visited Magdalen House Care Home unannounced on 18 June 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 Magdalen House Limited telling them that they must improve in the following areas by 08 July 2013

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

The service was failing to protect people against the risks associated with poor medicines management.

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 June 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.
