A Derbyshire care home where nine residents died after contracting Covid-19 has been rated ‘inadequate’ due to a lack of infection restrictions and personal protective equipment.

Oakford Manor Nursing Home in Newshaw Lane, Hadfield, in the High Peak, was given the lowest possible rating by health watchdogs the CQC.

The CQC wrote: “The provider did not follow or meet national guidance in relation to infection prevention and control for the Covid-19 pandemic.

“This put people and staff at risk. The provider had not introduced procedures to detect and control the spread of infection during the Covid-19 pandemic.

“Staff did not always wear or have access to appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).”
