Councillors heard an update on the status of a failing care home at a meeting this week.

Manton Hall was found to be failing five out of six care standards after an inspection in April.

A report on the home’s progress since the inspection was delivered to members of Rutland County Council’s people (adults and health) scrutiny panel on Thursday night.

The report said the council also had concerns about the home following complaints form staff and relatives of residents. A duty social worker and other officers were sent to the home on a regular basis to ensure it was keeping people safe from harm and investigating any received allegations.

On June 20 officers decided the required improvements in the home were not happening quickly enough and started a “large scale investigation”.

Following a safeguarding case conference on September 11 the investigation was lifted. The report to last night’s meeting said managers and staff at Manton Hall had responded “very positively, listening and acting upon the advice of officers” and that “great improvements have indeed been achieved.”
