Newark and Sherwood: Care Quality Commission data reveals number of covid-related deaths in care homes

Data has revealed the number of covid-related deaths in care homes.

This includes how many people have lost their lives in homes in Newark, Farndon, Southwell, Bingham, Ollerton — and other Advertiser areas.

The data, released by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) covers the period April 10, 2020, to March 31, 2021.

The CQC conducted 5,577 inspections of residential adult social care providers during this period.

The care commission said it also carried out inspections looking specifically at infection prevention control in care homes, so the public could be assured across eight key criteria services have an effective approach to infection prevention control.

It added it was important to note death notifications were not indicators of poor quality care given the potential influence of variable factors; including rates of local community transmission, size of the care home, and the age, health and care needs of the people living there.

"We are grateful for the time that families who lost their loved ones during the pandemic have spent meeting with us and the personal experiences they have shared.

"These discussions have helped us shape our thinking around the highly sensitive issue of publishing information on the numbers of death notifications involving covid-19 received from individual care homes.

"We have a duty to be transparent and to act in the public interest, and we made a commitment to publish data at this level, but only once we felt were able to do so as accurately and safely as possible given the complexity and sensitivity of the data. In doing so, we aim to provide a more comprehensive picture of the impact of covid-19 on care homes, the people living in them and their families.

"It is important to be clear, however, that although this data relates to deaths of people who were care home residents, many of them did not die in or contract covid-19 in a care home.

"As we publish this data, we ask for consideration and respect to be shown to people living in care homes, to families who have been affected, and to the staff who have done everything they could, in incredibly difficult circumstances, to look after those in their care."

The data covers deaths of residents involving covid-19 under the care of the provider as notified to CQC, regardless of where the virus was contracted or where the death occurred — including in the care home, hospital, ambulance or in any other setting.

For example, a resident may have been admitted from a care home to hospital with a fracture, contracted covid-19 while in hospital, and subsequently died without returning to the care home.
