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 unannounced inspection took place on 13 and 15 March 2017. The inspection was conducted by one adult social care inspector, a pharmacist inspector 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 care service.
Before the inspection we reviewed information we held about the service and any notifications we had received. A notification is information about important events which the service is required to send us by law. We also reviewed the action plan sent to us following our previous inspection.
During the inspection we spoke with seventeen people who were living at Blackwood. We looked around the premises and observed care practices on the day of our visit. We spoke with the manager, an assistant director of operations, fourteen members of staff and four relatives who were visiting the service.
We looked at five records relating to peopleâs individual care. We also looked at four staff files, staff duty rotas, staff training records and other records relating to the running of the service.
