A CARE home could face closure.
An application to cancel the registration of Greencroft Nursing Home in Shotton will be heard by Mold Magistrates Court today.
All 21 residents would have to be rehomed if the court agrees to the application.
An inspection on Monday uncovered a “serious risk to the health and wellbeing of residents”.
Alwyn Jones, Flintshire Council’s head of adult services said: “Flintshire Council has closely monitored Greencroft Nursing home in Shotton since instigating escalating concerns procedures in October 2012.
“The home remains under escalating concerns procedures.
“The council can confirm that following an inspection on February 18, 2013 the Care and Social Services Inspectorate Wales (CSSIW) has determined there was a serious risk to the health and wellbeing of residents there.
“CSSIW has therefore made an application to the court for an urgent cancellation of the registration of the service provided at Greencroft Nursing Home.
“A court date of February 22, 2013 has been set.
“In the event of closure, Flintshire Council will make necessary arrangements to support the transfer of the 21 residents to suitable alternative homes within the timescale specified in court.”
The home was unavailable for comment when contacted by the Leader.
