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 14 September 2015 and was announced. The provider was given 48 hoursâ notice because we needed to be sure that someone would be in.
The inspection was undertaken by an adult social care inspector. At the time of the visit there were six people using the service. We spoke with two of them and we also contacted three relatives of people living at the home. We spoke with three support staff and the registered manager. We also spoke with the advocate of one of the people who used the service. An advocate is someone who speaks up on peopleâs behalf. We observed how staff interacted and gave support to people throughout this visit.
Before our inspection, we reviewed all the information we held about the home including notifications that had been sent to us from the home. We also spoke with the local council contract monitoring officer who also undertakes periodic visits to the home.
Prior to our visit we had received a provider information return (PIR) from the provider which helped us to prepare for the inspection. 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.
We looked at documentation relating to people who used the service, staff and the management of the service. We looked at three peopleâs written records, including the plans of their care. We also looked at the systems used to manage peopleâs medication, including the storage and records kept. We looked at the quality assurance systems to check if they were robust and identified areas for improvement.
