Health trust criticised over Bicester care home failings
ANOTHER site owned by the trust criticised over the death of a teenager has failed an inspection.
Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust has apologised after its care home on Piggy Lane in Bicester failed a Care Quality Commission inspection.
It was inspected on January 8 and “raised concerns” in several areas, said the CQC report.
Medication was out of date, and staff admitted that they could not always provide safe care because of management and staffing problems.
The report said: “They said they had far too much to do, and this sometimes compromised the safety of the care they could deliver.”
Katrina Percy, chief executive of Southern Health, has this morning said: “Obviously I am extremely disappointed that we have not been offering the quality of services we should be.
“All of our drive and passion is going into improving the services we offer.”
Last month, the trust apologised after a CQC report criticised failings over the care of 18-year-old Connor Sparrowhawk.
He drowned while he was having a bath at Slade House, Headington.
