A spokesperson for the Corriewood management team told the Mirror: "We are fully engaging with the RQIA to improve in the areas which they have identified.
The RQIA has ordered the home to repay residents who have covered the cost of such items.
The RQIA added: "Most seriously we found no evidence of institutional abuse and do not believe the commissioner's findings support this statement."
He added: "Very few relatives were spoken to by the inspectors and managers told staff not to speak to the RQIA, so no one had a full picture of the really dreadful care."
