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 unannounced inspection took place on the 16 and 17 May 2016. The inspection was carried out by an inspector. Prior to the inspection we reviewed the information we held about the service, this included previous inspection reports and notifications we had received from the provider. Notifications are changes or events that occur at the service which the provider has a legal duty to inform us about. 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. We used the information on the PIR to inform our inspection.

During the inspection we spoke with six staff including the registered manager, the assistant manager, support staff including one bank staff member and one agency staff member. We spoke with one person who lived in the home. We were not able to speak with the other the people who lived in the home due to communication difficulties. We spoke with three relatives. We carried out observations of care and reviewed documents associated to four people’s care and their medicines. We reviewed records related the employment of three staff and audits connected to the running of the home.
