OverallRead overall summary
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 is 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.
This inspection took place on 14 January 2016 and was announced. The provider was given 24 hoursâ notice because the location was a small care home for adults who are often out during the day and we needed to be sure that someone would be in.
The inspection was undertaken by one inspector.
Before the inspection, the provider completed a Provider Information Return (PIR). This is a form that asks the provider to give some key information about the service, what the service does well and improvements they plan to make. We reviewed the information available to us about the home, such as the notifications that they had sent us. A notification is information about important events which the provider is required to send us by law. We also reviewed local authority inspection records.
During the inspection we spoke with three people using the service. We also spoke with two care staff and the registered manager. We received feedback from two healthcare professionals involved in the service.
We reviewed care records for three people using the service, looked at two staff files and reviewed records relating to medicines, training, quality audits, maintenance of the premises and staff meetings.
