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 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 3 May 2017 and was announced.
The provider was given a short period of notice because the service was a small care home and the people who lived there were often out during the day; we needed to be sure that someone would be in.
We looked at the information we held about the home such as notifications, which are events that happened in the home that the provider is required to tell us about. We also contacted other agencies who work with the provider such as service commissioners.
We spoke with both people who lived in the home. We looked at both peopleâs care records. We also spent time observing how staff provided care for people to help us better understand their experiences of care.
We spoke with two staff members and the provider. We looked at two staff files, supervision and appraisal arrangements and staff duty rotas. We also looked at records and arrangements for managing complaints and monitoring and assessing the quality of the service provided within the home.
