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.
The inspection was undertaken by three adult social care Inspectors. 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. Prior to the inspection we reviewed information we held about the home in the form of notifications received from the service such as accidents and incidents.
We reviewed statutory notifications and safeguarding referrals previously submitted by the service. We also liaised with external professionals including the local authority safeguarding team and NHS Salford clinical commissioning group (CCG).
We looked at records held by the service, including policies and procedures, staffing rotas, seven medication administration records (MAR) seven care files and five staff personnel files. We undertook pathway tracking of care records, which involves cross referencing care records via the homeâs documentation. We observed care within the home throughout the day.
At the time of the inspection there were 22 people using the service. During the inspection we spoke with the manager, the managing director, six care staff, four people who used the service, a nurse, four visiting relatives and one healthcare professional.
We observed care within the home throughout the day including the lunch time medicines round and the breakfast and lunchtime meal. We toured the premises and looked in various rooms. We also reviewed previous inspection reports and other information we held about the service.
