Care home forced to make improvements

Have your say

A CARE home has taken urgent action after an inspection found it was unsafe and rated it as inadequate.

The owner of Sailaway Residential Care Home in Main Road, Bosham, said improvements were made after the Care Quality Commission (CQC) inspected.

Inspectors found the home had building work which was not fenced off, the ceiling of one of the bathrooms was at risk of collapsing and the garden was not secure, meaning people were at risk of harm from traffic on a nearby road.

The report concluded it had failed to provide care which was safe, effective, or well led, but it was good for being caring.

The home was issued with three warning notices.

Owner Saroj Dahiya said building work stopped and the bathroom renovation was complete the month after the inspection.

She said: ‘We will continue to provide a high level of care for our residents and aim to resolve all concerns raised as soon as possible.

‘Furthermore CQC and West Sussex County Council have spoken highly about our level of care for our residents, this has always been our main priority at Sailaway Care Home and will always remain so.’
