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 7 September 2016 and was unannounced. The inspection team included one adult social care inspector.

We did not ask the provider to complete a Provider Information Return (PIR) before the inspection. 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. However, providers are required by law to notify the Care Quality Commission about events and incidents that occur including unexpected deaths, injuries to people receiving care and safeguarding matters. We reviewed the notifications the provider had sent us.

During the inspection, we spoke with four people who used the service, the relatives of two people in the home, three care workers, a health visitor and the registered manager. We looked at care plans for three people and other records relating to their care.

A selection of documentation relating to the management and running of the service was looked at. This included, four staff recruitment files, training records, the staff rotas, minutes of meetings with staff, accident and incident records, quality assurance audits and maintenance of equipment records. We observed the medication round, the midday meal and the interactions between people and care workers in the home.
