A Droitwich care home has been celebrating after a good report from the health and social care regulator.

Corbett House Nursing Home was visited by CQC (Care Quality Commission) inspectors on Thursday, September 21 and rated ‘good’ in a report published on Friday, October 23.

Inspectors said a number of improvements have taken place at the care home.

And bosses say they are proud of the “passionate” staff who have worked hard to achieve this report.

General manager Nina Nagra said: “I am very pleased to announce that after the CQC visit in September we were given a rating of good.

“It has been challenging times for Corbett House Nursing Home, especially after Covid. However, with the right team in place we have succeeded in achieving a ‘good’ report.

“We now have a strong passionate structured team in place with the same goal in mind of delivering the highest level of care.

“I would like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to the staff, residents and relatives for supporting us during these times.”

Registered care home manager Sue Finch added: “I am proud and feel privileged to work with a team that is dedicated, caring and supportive.

“We look forward to further enhancing the service, when one day we will achieve ‘outstanding’.”

CQC inspectors said the care home, which provides care for up to 35 people including those living with dementia, had improved the way medicines were stored, administered and managed.

“Staff knew people well and understood their individual risks and knew how to protect them from avoidable harm,” the report said.

“Staff supported people to have maximum choice and control of their lives and staff supported them in the least restrictive way possible and in their best interests.

“The policies and systems in the service supported this practice.”

Relatives of residents told inspectors they were made to feel welcome.

And the CQC said “significant improvements” to the home had included a new treatment room and kitchen, plus refurbished toilets and bathrooms.
