When the Care Quality Commission visited Kenilworth Care Home unannounced on 10 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 Mr Sunny Okulpolor Humphreys (Registered Provider) telling him that he must improve in the following areas by 9 August 2013:

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

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

For more details of the findings from the inspection in June 2013, read the full report here.

CQC inspectors 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 can 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.
