Four Seasons Care Home under scrutiny

Posted in: Criminal Injury and Assault Medical Negligence 

Police and Social Services are investigating allegations that a member of staff at the Laburnum Court Care Home in Lower Broughton, Salford assaulted an elderly resident in their care.  Greater Manchester Police said it was “called to a care home in the Salford Area on 7 April following reports a resident had been assaulted”.

Salford City Council stated that it is “confident appropriate measures” are in place at the home.  A spokesperson for the City Council added that it would work closely with all relevant agencies, adding “The investigation is in the early stages so we cannot comment further at this stage”.

Home “requiring improvement”

Laburnum Court Care Home is run by Four Seasons Health Care, an organisation that runs around 400 homes in Britain.  The home cares for up to 68 elderly people and provides specialist care for residents who have dementia.  Four Seasons have stated that the manager at the home had received concerns from a relative and had reported this to the authorities.  A spokeswoman for the Wilmslow, Cheshire based company stated, “When concerns were raised by a relative about the conduct of a member of staff towards a resident the home manager notified Care Quality Commission, safeguarding and the police so that the concern could be investigated in an unbiased and transparent way”.  She added “We are also co-operating actively in a separate police investigation that was initiated after a member of staff and a resident discovered apparent financial irregularities at the home”.

A recent inspection by the Care Quality Commission rated the home as requiring improvement.
