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 11 September 2018 and was unannounced.
The inspection team consisted of two adult social care inspectors, an assistant adult social care inspector and an expert-by-experience. An expert-by-experience is a person who has personal experience of using or caring for someone who uses this type of care service. The expert-by-experience had experience in caring for older people and people living with dementia.
Before this inspection we reviewed information available to us about the service. We reviewed safeguarding alerts and notifications submitted to us by the service. A notification is information about important events that the registered provider is legally required to send us. For example, where a person who uses the service suffers a serious injury. We took this information into account when we inspected the service.
Before this inspection we contacted social care commissioners who help arrange and monitor the care of people living at Abbey Grange Nursing Home and Healthwatch Sheffield. Healthwatch is an independent consumer champion that gathers and represents the views of the public about health and social care services in England. We used the comments and feedback received from these organisations to inform our inspection.
During this inspection we spoke with seven people living at Abbey Grange Nursing Home and six of their relatives. We spoke with 11 members of staff. This included the registered manager, a unit manager, two nurses, three senior care workers, a care worker, an activities coordinator and two members of the housekeeping team.
We looked at five peopleâs care records, five medication administration records and three staff files which included recruitment checks, supervisions, appraisals and training records. We looked at other records relating to the management of the home, such as quality assurance audits.
We spent time observing the daily life in the service. We observed care and support provided in communal areas and we looked around the building to check environmental safety and cleanliness. This enabled us to determine if people received the care and support they needed in an appropriate environment.
