Grandholm Care Home in Aberdeen again told to improve by Care Inspectorate

An Aberdeen care home has been told it must improve after being graded "weak" for the second inspection in a row.

The Care Inspectorate highlighted concerns about Grandholm Care Home in the Bridge of Don area of the city.

The facility had earlier been graded weak in April.

Inspectors noted: "Whilst we identified some positive experiences for residents, we found continuing areas for improvement to bring the service up to an acceptable standard."

Quality of care and support and quality of management and leadership were ranked weak.

Wound care, nutrition and fluid management, and staffing skills were highlighted as areas for improvement.

A spokesman for the Care Inspectorate said: "Everyone in Scotland has the right to safe, compassionate care which meets their needs and respects their rights.

"We have informed the service of the areas which must improve quickly so that the care provided to residents meets the standards we require.

"We will continue to work closely with this service to ensure it improves, but if we do not see evidence of improvement we will not hesitate to take further action."
