‘Dangerous’ care home closed

A care home in Liverpool, described as “dangerous” and “dirty”, has been closed following recent inspections. The Care Quality Commission (CQC) listed a number of failings at Mossley Manor Care Home, including managers with a “poor understanding” of their duties, insufficient staffing levels, and widespread cleanliness issues.
The report drawn up by the CQC highlighted enough health and safety failings to have the care home closed. On 5 June, Liverpool and Knowsley Magistrates’ Crown Court withdrew the registration of Mr Amjad Latif and Mr Amer Latif’s care home. The registration cancellation took immediate effect, meaning that they are no longer legally allowed to provide accommodation and care on their premises. They are entitled to a 28-day window in which they can challenge the decision.
“Extreme risks to residents’ safety and welfare”
It was stated in the CQC’s report that the care home had an “overpowering smell of urine”, with many of the rooms not linked to a hot water supply. Debbie Westhead, from the CQC, said that the home presented “extreme risks to residents’ safety and welfare”. She said that they had no choice but to close it down.
Liverpool City Council and the CQC said that it would support all of Mossley Manor’s residents in finding “suitable safe accommodation with as little disruption as possible”.
Mossley Manor Care Home has refused all comment on the case.
