Magnolia House care home in Cottingham has recently become just one of three services in the country to achieve compliance to the new British Standard for Adult Residential Care – BS8606:2019.
The home, which has the capacity to support 94 residents, was inspected by Care Inspections UK (CIUK), the UK’s only registered and accredited care home inspection body and was awarded a certificate of compliance.
The British Standard – BS8606:2019 – specifies requirements for the provision of care for adults requiring support, personal, nursing, and/or specialist care within a residential setting.
Chris Lane, a director at Park Lane Healthcare, said:
“We’re delighted that Magnolia House has done so well in two objective, independent assessments from nationally recognised professional bodies.
“Being recognised as a good service by both CIUK and the CQC is a testament to the hard work of the staff, particularly the managers, and I am incredibly proud that these excellent standards are maintained year after year.
“Magnolia House joins two of our other services as being the only care homes in the UK to achieve the new British standard in care. This achievement is representative of the high standards we set at all levels within our organisation.”
Kevin Groombridge, chief executive of Care Inspections UK, said:
“Maintaining excellent standards and a strong commitment to continuous improvement is key to a care home providing safe and appropriate care to its residents. The team at Magnolia House were welcoming to our inspectors, demonstrated the standards required to attain BS8606:2019, and took on board any constructive feedback we provided.”
