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 was 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 19 April 2017 and was unannounced. The inspection was carried out by three inspectors.

Before the inspection we reviewed the evidence we had about the service. This included any notifications of significant events, such as serious injuries or safeguarding referrals. Notifications are information about important events which the provider is required to send us by law. The provider had returned a Provider Information Return (PIR). This is a form that asks the provider to give some key information about the service, what the service does well and improvements they plan to make. We reviewed the PIR before our inspection to ensure we addressed any areas of concern.

During the inspection we spoke with 15 people who lived at the home and three relatives. We used the Short Observational Framework for Inspection (SOFI). SOFI is a way of observing care to help us understand the experience of people who could not tell us about their experience directly. We spoke with the registered manager and nine staff, including care, activities, maintenance and catering staff.

We looked at the care records of five people, including their assessments, care plans and risk assessments. We looked at how medicines were managed and the records relating to this. We looked at five staff recruitment files and other records relating to staff support and training. We also checked records used to monitor the quality of the service, such as the provider’s own audits of different aspects of the service.
