February was a busy month for me, and I didn’t get to the keyboard often. So I’m having an office day catching up with this blog.
It may take a while, because it looks like there are a lot. Yes CQC are rolling out their new inspection model, yes they have raised the bar, but I don’t see that as an excuse for any responsible provider. Clearly those that are good and outstanding have been rated as such.
So first week in Feb, two BUPA homes in trouble.
What’s that about, when BUPA clearly have resources, don’t they?
I can guess at the answers, having experience of working for large organisations, but I wouldn’t like to post them here without a lot more evidence to back up any claims and avoid a libel case.
So in general my experience in large organisations would suggest that maybe these areas need looking into-
1-Priorities of the organisation. What is the balance between providing good care and making money?
2-Central focus. Does the centre know whats happening on the floor and vice versa?
3-Branding. Are these BUPA homes or homes that BUPA run?
