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 2014.
This inspection took place on 04 April 2016 and was unannounced. The inspection team consisted of one adult social care inspector, a specialist advisor in nursing 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 this inspection there were 26 people living at Southlands Nursing Home. One person was living in the self-contained apartments. We spoke with nine people who used the service, two relatives, six staff, the deputy manager and the registered manager. We spent some time looking at documents and records that related to peopleâs care and support and the management of the service. We looked at three peopleâs care plans.
Before the inspection, the provider had completed a Provider Information Return (PIR). This is a document that asks the provider to give some key information about the service, what the service does well and improvements they plan to make. We also reviewed all the information we held about the service. This included any statutory notifications that had been sent to us. We contacted the local authority and Healthwatch for feedback. Healthwatch is an independent consumer champion that gathers and represents the views of the public about health and social care services in England. Healthwatch stated they had no information about Southlands and the local authority held no current up to date information.
