But Mr Halfon was in upbeat mood after a visit.
Mr Halfon said: ‘I had a good meeting with Catherine Perrin and it is clear that there are parts of the home that work well.
“There are many parts of the home that are working well and there is a dedicated team there.
“However, there are problems on the Mallard Wing (which deals with Alzheimer sufferers)and so for all the assurances, the proof of the pudding is in the eating.
The Care Home has until August 23rd to turn things around.
Mr Halfon has been in talks with the minister for health and care, Norman Lamb.
The owners of the home, Rushcliffe Care have declined to comment to the media.
