A council-owned care home, which was told to ensure 21 residents had access to more than one bathroom, has been criticised by inspectors for making no progress in six months.
Faithlie Care Home was visited unannounced by the Care Inspectorate in February and the authorities found that measures designed to improve the quality of life for residents had been ignored.
At the time of inspection, there were 34 people living in the Aberdeenshire Council-provided service.
During a visit in March last year, inspectors ruled there were “insufficient bathrooms”, because there were 21 residents on the first floor and only one bathroom.
When the institute was then visited by inspectors in September, the facility received good and very good ratings on all aspects other than the lack of toilet provision which was only awarded an adequate grade.
