We carried out this inspection under Section 60 of the Health and Social Care Act 2008 as part of our regulatory functions. This inspection checked 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.
This inspection took place on 16 and 17 October 2017 and was unannounced. The inspection team consisted of one Adult Social Care inspector, one assistant inspector, one senior analyst and an expert-by-experience who had experience of people living in a nursing environment. An expert-by-experience is a person who has personal experience of using or caring for someone who uses this type of care service.
At the time of the inspection there were 17 people living at the home. We spoke with nine people who used the service, three relatives and six staff, including the registered manager, kitchen staff, senior nurses and care staff. We also spoke with a visiting health professional. We looked at documents relevant to peopleâs care and support and the management of the service, such as quality audits, medicine administration records and risk assessments. We looked at five peopleâs care plans.
Before the inspection, we asked the provider to complete a Provider Information Return (PIR). This document asks the provider to give key information about the service, what the service does well and any improvements they plan to make. We reviewed all the information we held about the service. This included any statutory notifications that had been sent to us. We also contacted the local authority and Healthwatch for any information they had about the service. Healthwatch is an independent consumer champion that gathers and represents the views of the public about health and social care services in England.
