The Care Quality Commission has taken enforcement action to cancel the registration of a care provider. Mr Thurairatnam Nadarajah Prakash is now no longer legally allowed to provide care at his service Durham Care Homes in Hull.
The latest inspection, in February 2019, rated the service inadequate overall and it was placed into special measures. The inspection revealed a significant deterioration in the care being provided and inspectors began the process to take enforcement action. Previously the service had been rated Requires Improvement in October 2017 and November 2018.
Shortly after the recent inspection the provider announced their intention to close the home. The decision to cancel the provider’s registration was completed on 25 April 2019, the provider did not appeal the decision.
Inspectors worked closely with Hull City Council who supported the safe relocation of the home’s 14 residents prior to CQC’s action and its closure.
