Care Homes are an area which the Care Quality Commission (CQC) is targeting to ensure that the care provided to vulnerable residents is compliant with the Health and Social Care Act 2008. The CQC have a range of enforcement options open to them, such as Penalty Notices, caution, civil enforcement, prosecution and removal of registration.
All of these can have serious consequences for your business as any penalty imposed will be published on the CQC website which is accessible to the public. It can also put in jeopardy existing contracts with local authorities.
