Inadequate rating for care home being investigated by police

By Luke King in Community News

A CARE home in Bromley has been brandished inadequate by inspectors from the Care Quality Commission.

They were called in after concerns were about the treatment of people living at Rosecroft Residential Care Home in Plaistow Lane. Those concerns are currently being investigated by the police.

Rosecroft is a small care home catering for up to 20 people. At the time of CQC inspectors’ unannounced visited over two days in January 2017, 13 people were receiving care.

Inspectors imposed conditions to restrict new admissions to Rosecroft after noting numerous failings, including that medicines were not managed, administered, recorded and stored safely.

Deputy chief inspector Debbie Ivanova said: “The overall rating for Rosecroft Residential Care home is ’Inadequate’ and the service is therefore in ’special measures’.

“Services in special measures will be kept under review and, if we have not taken immediate action to propose to cancel the provider’s registration, it will be inspected again within six months.”
