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 29 June 2016. It was unannounced and was carried out by two inspectors a Specialist Professional Advisor who is a qualified nurse and an Expert by Experience. An Expert by Experience is a person who has personal experience of using or caring for someone who uses this type of service.

We reviewed all the information we had available about the service, including notifications sent to us by the provider. A notification is information about important events which the provider is required to send us by law. We used this information to plan what areas we were going to focus on during our inspection.

During the inspection we spoke with eight people who used the service, the registered manager, deputy manager and business manager and five staff including the Qualified Nurse. We also spoke with seven relatives that were visiting at the time of our inspection and two healthcare professionals.

We reviewed six people’s care records, six staff recruitment records, medication charts, staffing rotas and records which related to how the service monitored staffing levels and the quality of the service. We also looked at information which related to the management of the service such as health and safety records, quality monitoring audits and records of complaints.
