Advising with empathy and experience

Charges follow care home death.

Two men and a woman who were owners and helped to run a former Nottingham care home have been charged with gross negligence manslaughter after the death of an 86-year-old resident.

The resident, Ivy Atkin, died on 22 November 2012, shortly after being moved from Autumn Grange Care Home, in Sherwood Rise.

Sherwood Rise Ltd, which Autumn Grange, has also been summonsed on a corporate manslaughter charge.

Autumn Grange was closed on 5 November 2012 when its local authority contract was suspended and the residents were moved to other homes.

Managing director Naseen Kiani, 53, of Whirlow Grange Drive, Sheffield; acting manager Yousaf Khan, 46, of Nelson Road, Nottingham and deputy manager Mohammed Rahamatullah Khan, 38, of Zulla Road, Nottingham all face gross negligence manslaughter charges.

Deputy operations manager Safeena Bibi, 26, of Plantation Side, Nottingham, has been charged with Health and Safety at Work Act offences.

All four are due to appear at Nottingham Magistrates' Court on 14 April.

The company secretary of Sherwood Rise Ltd will also be summonsed to attend.

Five other people who were bailed in connection with the death have been released with without charge.
