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 was undertaken by two adult social care inspectors from the Care Quality Commission (CQC). Before the inspection we did not request a Provider Information Return (PIR). Prior to the inspection we reviewed information we held about the home in the form of statutory notifications received such as expected and unexpected deaths, accidents, incidents and safeguarding referrals.

At the time of the inspection there were 34 people living at Acorns Care Centre. The home provides single occupancy rooms with en-suite facilities, across three floors.

Throughout the day, we observed care and treatment being delivered in communal areas which included communal lounges and dining areas. We looked at the kitchen, bathrooms and external grounds.

We asked people for their views about the service and facilities provided. During the inspection we spoke with; one visiting healthcare professional, five people living at the home, and two relatives. We also spoke with eight members of staff, which included; both registered managers, four care staff, the activities coordinator and the chef.

We looked at documentation including; five care plans and associated documentation, three staff recruitment records, training and supervision, five Medication Administration Records (MAR), a variety of policies and procedures and safety and maintenance completion of works and certificates.
