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 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 15 & 16 October 2015 and was unannounced. The inspection team comprised of three inspectors and an expert by experience, with personal experience of caring for someone who used health and care services.
In planning for our inspection we reviewed the information that we held about the service, including notifications from the service about things that happened in the home and information provided by some of the staff that worked there.
We contacted the Nene Clinical Commissioning Group (NCCG). Clinical Commissioning Groups are groups of GPs who are responsible for designing local health services in England. They do this by commissioning or buying health and care services for Northamptonshire. We contacted Northamptonshire County Council Commissioners and the Safeguarding Team.
Many of the people living at Brockfield House were unable to recall their experiences or express their views; however we spoke with eleven of the people living there and we observed the care they received and their interactions with staff. During our inspection we spoke with sixteen staff including members of the management team, care staff, team leaders, Nurses, housekeeping staff and eight relatives.
We reviewed the care records of seven people who used the service and eight staff recruitment files. We also reviewed records relating to the management and quality assurance of the service.
We made observations about the service and the way that care was provided. We also used the Short Observational Framework Inspection (SOFI); SOFI is a specific way of observing care to help us understand the experience of people who could not talk with us.
