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.

The inspection took place on 4 July 2016, was unannounced and undertaken by three inspectors, one specialist advisor who had knowledge and experience in nursing care, and one 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 the provider completed a Provider Information Return [PIR]. This is a form which asks the provider to give some key information about the service, what the service does well and improvements they plan to make. We also reviewed information we had received about the service such as notifications. This is information about important events which the provider is required to send us by law.

During the inspection we spoke with 19 people living at the service, 10 relatives, and three health professionals. We spoke with the registered manager, deputy manager, regional support manager, and 14 members of staff including care, catering and domestic staff. We also observed the interactions between staff and people.

To help us assess how people’s care needs were being met we reviewed 11 people’s care records and other information, including risk assessments and medicines records. We reviewed five staff recruitment files, maintenance files and a selection of records which monitored the safety and quality of the service.
