Orton House care home rated 'inadequate' in CQC report
A WIRRAL care home has been given the worst possible rating after residents were found to be 'at risk of infection.'
Orton House, on Woodchurch Road in Birkenhead, was rated 'inadequate' in a recently published report after inspectors from the Care Quality Commission (CQC) found it was understaffed and put people at risk of infection.
At the time of the inspection in late October, the home provided residential care for 31 people, but it scored ‘inadequate’ for safety and leadership, with inspectors stating that service users were “at risk of avoidable harm”.
A spokesperson for the care home said there had been no coronavirus cases at the home during the pandemic, showing that Orton House has kept service users safe.Read more
