Care Homes: Standards

Volume 470: debated on Tuesday 15 January 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many nursing homes receiving local authority-funded residents have been placed on a caution list in the last 12 months, broken down by local authority. (177528)

[holding answer 10 January 2008]: The Department is not aware of the use of caution lists in respect of nursing homes. All care and nursing homes in England are regulated and inspected by the Commission for Social Care Inspection (CSCI). The table shows data provided by CSCI on the numbers of nursing homes per local authority which are rated as ‘poor’ or ‘undergoing enforcement’ as at 9 January 2008.

All services which CSCI rates in these categories become part of its regional enforcement strategy. For any such services, CSCI will undertake a management review and request a mandatory improvement plan. These services will also receive a greater number of inspections—a minimum of two key inspections a year—as a result of their rating. As data are not collected on homes catering for local authority-funded residents, the numbers shown are in respect of all nursing homes in England.
