New ratings awarded to care homes in North Lincolnshire
The latest scores for care homes in North Lincolnshire have been released – with three services given new ratings.
The Care Quality Commission is in charge of inspecting social care services across England. The organisation judges care providers across various metrics – with the best possible rating being 'outstanding', and the worst 'inadequate'.
The latest batch of ratings from the CQC show three providers have been rated in North Lincolnshire in October.
A care home, Norwood House, was told it 'requires improvement' on October 11. The home was last inspected on September 13.
Having been inspected on September 21, Randolph House Care Home – another residential care home – was judged as 'good'. The rating was published on October 11.
In addition, The Grange was awarded a 'requires improvement' by the CQC on October 21. Its latest inspection was on September 13.
The highest possible rating is 'outstanding': given to organisations exceeding expectations. Meanwhile, a 'good' scores shows the provider is meeting the CQC's criteria.
However, a service found to be needing improvement will not be up to the CQC's standards, and a service given an 'inadequate' rating will ordinarily be placed in special measures by the CQC.
