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 12 October 2017 and was unannounced.
The inspection team consisted of two adult social care inspectors and an expert by experience with expertise in the care of older people.
Before our inspection we reviewed the information we held about the home. This included the Provider Information Return (PIR). A PIR 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 also looked at the intelligence the Care Quality Commission had received about the home.
During the inspection we spent time with 6 people who were living at the home and they shared their views of the home with us. We also spoke to three relatives who were visiting at the time of our inspection. We spoke with six staff, including the registered managers, and the chef. We also spoke with three visiting healthcare professionals.
We looked at the care records for four people living at the home, four staff personnel files and records relevant to the quality monitoring of the service. We looked around the home, including peopleâs bedrooms, the kitchen, bathrooms, garden and the lounge areas.
