The Care Quality Commission (CQC) has today announced it has taken action to cancel the registration of a care home provider in Yorkshire “to protect the safety and welfare of people in its care”.

CQC’s decision to cancel Mr Atique Rehman’s registration means that he can no longer legally operate a care service at Royd Hill Nursing Home in Keighley, Yorkshire.

The CQC carried out two unannounced visits in February 2015 and asked for an action plan to address their concerns on 9 February.

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) has today announced it has taken action to cancel the registration of a care home provider in Yorkshire “to protect the safety and welfare of people in its care”.

CQC’s decision to cancel Mr Atique Rehman’s registration means that he can no longer legally operate a care service at Royd Hill Nursing Home in Keighley, Yorkshire.

The CQC carried out two unannounced visits in February 2015 and asked for an action plan to address their concerns on 9 February.

The report said: “The action plan returned by the provider on 10 February 2015 lacked detail, was aspirational and did not provide any means by which the provider would monitor and improve the care being provided. An updated action plan was again requested from the provider on 10 February 2015. This also failed to address the concerns we had highlighted.”

It continued to state that practices at the home “put people at risk of receiving inappropriate care and treatment, of receiving insufficient fluids and food, receiving inappropriate support around pressure ulcer prevention and unsafe moving and handling techniques.”

In the home is says that chairs, walls, and carpets were stained and marked and there was a strong unpleasant smell of urine, particularly in the communal lounge area and the ground floor corridor. Inspectors were “extremely concerned” that where people had lost weight little or no action had been taken to address this.

Royd Hill Nursing home was unavailable comment.
