The health watchdog has slammed the Daughters of Charity Disability Support Service on the Navan Road. A damning report has found major non-compliance after it was called upon to make changes to improve the quality of life of people at the centre.
HIQA found the premises at Ashington was inappropriate to the needs of residents, during an unannounced inspection. Seven outcomes were assessed during the unannounced visit, including residents' dignity, health and safety and management.
In its report, the inspector found that "a high number of the required actions were not achieved and therefore, there continued to be a high level of regulatory non-compliance across all outcomes inspected."
The centre was found to have failed to improve the quality of life for residents since the last inspection, including health, safety and risk management. The premises was also found to be inappropriate to residents' assessed needs, negatively impacting on their day to day lives.
HIQA found that "significant improvements" are still required to improve residents' rights,
dignity and consultation.
