CQC concerned about temperature of radiators left unguarded in Cleveleys care home

A Cleveleys care home has failed to meet the necessary security standards for its building, Inspectors for the Care Quality Commission (CQC) have reported.

According to a news article in the local media, the inspectors highlights concerns about the temperature of radiators left unguarded throughout the home, on Stockdove Way.

The report says: “The toilets and bathrooms, the dining room and seven bedrooms had unguarded radiators.

“The registered manager told us that in her opinion, several of the radiators were low risk to people as chairs were placed in front of them.”

It adds in some rooms radiators were off for a period of time, leaving them feeling cold.

In specific situations such as the one described above, installing a heating management solution that would enable the care home’s staff to control every single radiator is the safest and most reliable approach, and this is specifically where the HeatSave wireless thermostatic radiator valves could really prove their worth.
