An inspection from Care Quality Commission (CQC) found extreme conditions of insanitation at Woolton Manor Care Home in Liverpool.

According to their report, some patients at the care home went as far as seven weeks without a bath or shower and the bedrooms 'smelt strongly of urine.' Many patients only received 'strip washes' or 'bed baths' for the most part.

It was further reported that the measures for preventing injuries to the patients were also not taken. The report rated the care home as 'inadequate' for the third time in a row.

It was also declared that the residents 'continued to be placed at serious risk' due to a number of shortcomings in the care home.

During the inspection, it was also witnessed that one resident had to wait for more than 15 minutes to go to the toilet because of a shortage of staff to take them.

The care home also failed to appoint a registered manager for a number of years. It also failed to review the fire risk assessment for eight years, a precautionary measure that should be taken each year.

Inspectors also found that the people at the care home also had nothing to do and a majority of them spent their time watching television all day. It hosted just 25 patients despite having a capacity for 66.

The owner of the care home, A.Y. Chudary has denied the claims made by the report. He has also decided that he will be appealing against it.

He defended himself by stating that he has been a registered provider for 25 years and has opted to take legal action over the report.
