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.
This was a comprehensive inspection, which took place because we carry out comprehensive inspections of services rated as Good at least once every two years. This inspection took place on 19 and 23 May 2017 and was announced. We announced this inspection with 48 hours notice. We did this because we needed the registered manager to be available for the inspection.
The inspection team consisted of two inspectors. One inspector visited the office and made visits to people in their homes. Another inspector made telephone calls to people who used the service.
Prior to the inspection we reviewed the information we held about the home. We looked at information received from relatives, the local authority commissioners and the statutory notifications the registered manager had sent us. A statutory notification is information about important events which the provider is required to send to us by law. Commissioners are people who work to find appropriate care and support homes which are paid for by the local authority.
To gain peopleâs views about the service, we spoke with 12 people who used the service. We spoke with seven staff including the registered manager, training coordinator and five care workers.
We looked at the providerâs records. These included 13 peopleâs care records, care plans, health records, risk assessments and daily care records. We looked at seven staff files, audits, satisfaction surveys, staff rotas, and policies and procedures.
