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.

The inspection took place on 16 and 17 May 2018. Our visit on 16 May 2018 was unannounced and focused on speaking to people who lived in the home, their visitors and the staff on duty. We also observed how the staff interacted with people and looked at care records for four people and medication storage and records. We arranged to return to the home on 17 May 2018 to look at records related the management of the service.

The inspection was carried out by one adult social care inspector.

There were 22 people living in the home when we carried out our inspection. We spoke with 11 people who lived in the home, three visitors to the home, three members of the care team, three ancillary staff, the registered manager, care manager and assistant manager of the home.

During the inspection we looked at care records for four people and recruitment and training records for four staff. We also looked at records relating to how the registered manager assessed the quality and safety of the service.

Before the inspection, the registered manager completed a Provider Information Return (PIR). This is a form that asks for key information about the service, what the service does well and improvements they plan to make. We reviewed the information we held about the service, including the information in the PIR, before we visited the home. We also contacted local health and social care commissioning teams to gather their views of the service.
