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 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 29 June 2016 and was unannounced.
The inspection team consisted of an inspector and an Expert-by-Experience. This is a person who has personal experience of using or caring for someone who uses this type of care service.
Before the inspection, the provider completed a Provider Information Return (PIR). This is a form that asks the provider to give some key information about the service, what the service does well and improvements they plan to make. Before our inspection, we reviewed the PIR and other information we held about the home, which included notifications they had sent us. A notification is information about important events which the provider is required to send us by law. We also contacted local authority commissioners of adult social care services and Healthwatch and asked them for their views of the service provided.
We spoke with six people who used the service, five relatives, three members of the care staff, the cook and the deputy manager. We also spoke with one healthcare professional and another professional who was visiting the home during the inspection.
We looked at all or parts of the care records and other relevant records of seven people who used the service, as well as a range of records relating to the running of the service. We also reviewed staff records.
