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 made the necessary improvements and was meeting the legal requirements and regulations associated with the Health and Social Care Act 2012.

The inspection was carried out on 16 January 2017 and was unannounced. The inspection team consisted of two inspectors.

Before the inspection, we asked the provider to complete a Provider Information Return (PIR). This is a form that requires them to give some key information about the service, what the service does well and improvements they plan to make. We also reviewed information we held about the service including statutory notifications. Statutory notifications include information about important events which the provider is required to send us by law.

We carried out observations in communal lounges and dining rooms and used the Short Observational Framework for Inspection (SOFI). SOFI is a specific way of observing care to help us understand the experience of people who could not talk with us due to their complex health needs.

During the inspection we spoke with eight people who lived at the home, two relatives, five staff, a health care professional and the registered manager. We looked at care records relating to four people and other records relating to the management of the home.
