CQC tells Leeds rehabilitation unit it must improve services
The Care Quality Commission has told Spring Wood Lodge in Leeds, that it must improve the quality of its services following an inspection in June.
Spring Wood Lodge is a community inpatient locked rehabilitation service and is able to provide care to a maximum of 22 female patients. There are two wards, Bronte and Byron. At the time of inspection the service nine patients were being cared for on Bronte ward, and Byron ward was closed for refurbishment.
The report can be found on our website.
Findings from the inspection included:
- Inspectors found safety was not a sufficient priority, and there was limited measurement and monitoring of safety.
- The management of risks in the environment was poor and there were several concerns about the management of medication.
- Patients were at risk of not receiving effective care and treatment.
- Staff did not always adhere to the Mental Health Act code of practice.
CQC has rated Spring Wood Lodge as Inadequate and placed it into special measures
Services placed in special measures will be inspected again within six months. If insufficient improvements have been made such that there remains a rating of inadequate overall or for any key question or core service, CQC will take action in line with their enforcement procedures.
For further information please contact CQC Regional Engagement Officer Kerri James by email email@example.com or by phone on 07464 92 9966.
