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 checked 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 took place on 23 and 24 October 2017. The first day was unannounced which meant the provider did not know we would be visiting on that day.
The inspection team consisted of two adult social care inspectors and an assistant inspector from CQC, a specialist nurse advisor and an expert by experience. The expert was experienced in dementia and mental health in a residential, community and NHS setting.
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 also liaised with Salford local authority safeguarding team.
During our inspection of Abbeydale Nursing Home we spoke with four people who used the service, two visiting relatives, four members of staff directly involved in providing care, the deputy manager, the registered manager and the provider. We also spoke with a visiting healthcare professional.
We undertook âpathway trackingâ of care records, which involves cross referencing peopleâs care records via the homeâs documentation. We observed care within the home throughout the day in the lounges and communal areas and looked at six staff personnel files.
We observed the morning 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.
