We carried out this inspection under Section 60 of the Health and Social Care Act 2008 as part of our regulatory functions. This inspection checked 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 8 June 2016. The inspection team consisted of one inspector and a Specialist Advisor. A Specialist Advisor is someone who can provide specialist advice to ensure that our judgements are based on up to date clinical and professional knowledge. The Specialist Advisor who participated in this inspection was a nurse with experience of working with service users with profound and multiple disabilities.

Before the inspection, we asked the provider to complete a Provider Information Return (PIR) and this was completed. A PIR is a form that asks the provider some key information that we held about the service, what the service does well and any improvements they plan to make.

We reviewed information we had received about the service. This included statutory notifications sent to us by the registered manager about incidents and events that had occurred at the service. A notification is information about important events, which the service is required to send to us by law.

During the inspection, we spoke with eight people using the service, the registered manager, one team leader, two nurses and three care staff. After the inspection, we contacted five relatives and six external professionals involved with the people who used the service to obtain further feedback.

We reviewed five people’s care records and four medication administration records (MAR). We looked at three staff files including their supervision records. We also looked at a range of records relating to the management of the home. We observed the way staff interacted with people.
