Vivo Care Choices is due before Chester Magistrates’ Court today after pleading guilty to charges brought by the Care Quality Commission.

The prosecution relates to Vivo Care Choices’ failure to provide safe care and treatment, which exposed an 89-year-old woman to significant risk of avoidable harm while resident at Curzon House, a care home in Saltney, Chester. Injuries the woman sustained during a fall at the home were cited on her death certificate as a contributing factor.

Vivo Care Choices has pleaded guilty to breaching Regulation 12 of the Health and Social Care Act 2008 (Regulated Activities) Regulations 2014.
