As a result, CQC has issued a formal warning to Four Seasons Homes No 4 Limited telling them that they must improve in the following area by 29 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 May 2013 read the full report below.

 

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.
