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 home under the Care Act 2014.

This inspection took place on 07 September and was unannounced. The inspection was carried out by two inspectors.

Before our inspection we reviewed the information we held about the home, including the provider information return (PIR). This is a form in which we ask the provider to give some key information about the home, what the home does well and improvements they plan to make. We reviewed notifications the provider had sent us since our previous inspection. A notification is important information about particular events that occur at the home that the provider is required by law to tell us about. We contacted local authority commissioners that had contact with the home to obtain their views.

During our inspection we spoke with four people who lived at Waterbeach Lodge and four relatives of people living at Waterbeach Lodge. We also talked with the registered manager, compliance manager and operations manager. We also spoke with, and one head of care, one senior care assistant, one care assistant, one cook and one housekeeper. We looked at the care records for four people. We also looked at records that related to health and safety and quality monitoring. We looked at medication administration records (MARs). We observed how the staff supported people in the communal areas. Observations are a way of helping us understand the experience of people living in the home.
