A Spalding care home is celebrating after it was found to be fully compliant with expected standards during an inspection.

St John’s care home recently received an unannounced, random visit from Care Quality Commission inspectors.

At a time when the quality of care is being scrutinised more meticulously than ever, St John’s, which recently underwent a £1million refurbishment, was rigorously checked against several standards.

The Care Quality Commission inspector highlighted certain areas which she felt St John’s had excelled in, including diversity, values and human rights, as well as the ability of staff to identify manage and assess the risks of health, safety and welfare of residents.

Home manager Sharon Neve said: “Obviously we are all delighted at the feedback received from the Care Quality Commission, we have been working extremely hard to constantly deliver an excellent service at St John’s, and to receive this recognition of a wonderful feeling.

“Receiving a ‘fully compliant’ status represents excellence and gives our dedicated team of people the recognition they deserve for their hard work and commitment.”
