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.

This inspection took place on 21 and 22 June 2016 and was unannounced. On the first day of our inspection, the inspection team was made up of two Adult Social Care (ASC) Inspectors. On the second day, the inspection team was made up of three ASC Inspectors.

Before our inspection, we asked the registered provider to complete a Provider Information Return (PIR). This is a form that asks the registered provider to give some key information about the service, what the service does well and what improvements they plan to make. We looked at information we held about the service, which included information shared with the Care Quality Commission via our public website and notifications sent to us. Notifications are made by registered providers to give us information about changes, events or incidents that occur within the service. We contacted the local authority’s quality assurance and contracting team to ask for their feedback about the service which was positive. We used this information to plan our inspection.

During the inspection, we spoke with seven people who used the service and observed their daily routines. In addition we spoke with three people who were visiting their relatives or friends. We spoke with the registered manager, deputy manager, eight care workers and the chef.

We looked at eight people’s care files, ten staff recruitment and training files, records relating to the management of medicines within the home and a selection of records used to monitor the quality of the service such as audits, staff meeting minutes and policies and procedures. We observed medicines being administered, activity sessions and a lunch time period.

Following the inspection we contacted a district nurse, a social worker and a clinical nurse specialist to gather their views about the service. Their comments have been included in the report.
