Precious Homes Ltd Successfully Meets CQC Standards for Quality and Safety
20 Oct 2011
Precious Homes Ltd has been successfully reviewed by the Care Quality Commission to meet all essential standards of care.
The Review of Compliance was issued this month (October 2011) following immediate improvements that were made since the CQC’s initial visit in August, when two areas were outlined for improvement at one of the company’s projects in East London.
Precious Homes has since reviewed and implemented new policies and procedures in the Management of medicines and Support of staff at the project, to ensure that it is managed to the same high standards prevalent across the organisation.
Staff also reported that they felt supported by the management and confirmed that they received regular supervision.
The CQC reported that:
- • Precious Homes is protecting people against the risks associated with the unsafe use and management of medication
- • Precious Homes’ staff were enthusiastic about working at the project and had a good understanding about the needs of the people they support
Mitesh Dhanak, Managing Director said:
‘We are dedicated to providing exceptional standards of care across all of our projects. From the moment we were alerted that one of our projects was not meeting our high standards we acted immediately and we’re pleased that the CQC have been able to confirm that the improvements we made have been successful’
A spokesperson from the CQC said, “On our latest inspection we found that Precious Homes has made the required improvements in service to comply with the CQC’s standards of care, and the company was very cooperative with the inspection team.”
