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 6 April 2016 and was unannounced. The inspection was carried out by one inspector.
Prior to the inspection we reviewed the information we held about the service. This included information sent to us by the provider, about the staff and the people who used the service. Before the inspection the provider completed a Provider Information Return (PIR). This is a form that asks the provider to give key information about the service, what the service does well and improvements they plan to make. We spoke with the local safeguarding team, healthwatch and two health professionals to obtain their views.
During the visit, we spoke with eight people who used the service, one visitor, three care staff, the cook and the registered manager. We spent time observing care and support in communal areas.
We also looked at five care records for people who used the service, 15 medicine administration records, five staff records and records relating to the management of the service.
