We carried out this inspection under Section 60 of the Health and Social Care Act 2008 as part of our regulatory functions. This inspection was planned to check whether the provider was meeting the legal requirements and regulations associated with the Health and Social Care Act 2008, to look at the overall quality of the service, and to provide a rating for the service under the Care Act 2014.

The inspection took place on 6 February 2016 and was unannounced. The inspection was conducted by one inspector.

Before the inspection visit we reviewed the information we held about the service. This included any notifications the provider had sent to us about what was happening in the home. We also contacted the Local Authority and Healthwatch to ask for any information they may have.

We observed care practice, spoke with two people who used the service, three relatives of people who use the service, the registered manager, acting senior carer and one carer. We also spoke with two professionals who visited the service. We looked at documentation, including three people’s care and support plans and daily notes. We also looked at three staff files and records relating to the management of the service. These included audits such as medicine administration and maintenance of the environment, staff rotas, training records and policies and procedures.

Not all of the people living in the home were able to fully express their views about their care. We used the Short Observational Framework for Inspection (SOFI) to capture the experiences of people who may not be able to verbally communicate their views to us.
