Island Care Home Staff Suspended

The manager and another member of staff have been suspended from a care home on Anglesey after a “series of failings”.

Regard Partnership Ltd which runs the Beudygwyn Farm care home at Amlwch said it regretted any lapses in care and would not tolerate any failings.

The Care and Social Services Inspectorate for Wales (CSSIW) said it had imposed conditions at the home.

Anglesey Council confirmed it had withdrawn six residents from the home for vulnerable adults.

A council spokesman said social services and the CSSIW were investigating care practices at the home.

“As this investigation is currently on-going, it would not be appropriate to comment further at this time,” he added.

The CSSIW confirmed it was working with other agencies under procedures for protecting vulnerable adults in relation to Beudygwyn Farm.

“CSSIW has to date imposed two conditions on the registration of this care home which means that there can be no further admissions until we are satisfied that the home meets the expected standards.

“It has also taken out of use a part of the accommodation,” said their spokesman.

“Three compliance notices have also been issued,” he added.

Beudygwyn is a 12 acre non-working farm with a main four-bedded farmhouse and four cottages.

Eugene Hayes, chief operating officer of the Regard Partnership confirmed that two staff members had been suspended “after a series of failings in the care of residents at the home”.

He said the company was “working closely at the highest level” with Anglesey social services and the CSSIW to ensure a full investigation is carried out.

“We regret any lapses in care for our services users and are adamant that any failings will not be tolerated.

“The Regard Partnership strives at all times to maintain the very highest levels of care,” Mr Hayes added.

The company has homes for adults with learning disabilities, enduring mental health problems and acquired brain injury across the UK.
