A DUMBARTON care home has been ordered to revamp its recruitment process.

Watchdogs from the Care Inspectorate visited Strathleven Care Home on Strathleven Place last month, and gave an overall favourable review of the service.

The home was rated “good” for how it supports people’s wellbeing and how it plans support.

However, the level of staffing was graded as “adequate”.

Inspectors have the power to recommend improvements, and the Care Inspectorate said the service should “ensure that they implement robust and thorough recruitment procedures in accordance with current best practice for example, the Scottish Government’s national guidance Safer Recruitment Through Better Recruitment”.

The change would help the home to meet government regulations.

Residents told the Care Inspectorate the home was “spotless”, and said it “could not be better”, as well as describing staff as being “very good”.
