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 24 and 26 April 2018. The first day was unannounced, however we informed staff we would be returning for a second and third day to complete the inspection and announced this in advance. The inspection was carried out by an adult social care inspector and a specialist advisor (SPA) pharmacist from the CQC on the first day of the inspection. The remainder of the inspection was carried out by one adult social care inspector.

Prior to the inspection we reviewed all of the information we held about the home in the form of notifications, previous inspection reports, expected/unexpected deaths and safeguarding incidents. We contacted Salford city council before our inspection to establish if they had any information to share with us. This would indicate if there were any particular areas to focus on during the inspection.

During the inspection we spoke with a wide range of people and viewed records.. This included speaking with the registered manager, senior regional manager, seven people who lived at the home, three visiting relatives, seven care staff (from both days and nights) and three visiting health care professionals.

Records looked at included 10 care plans, four staff personnel files, 25 Medication Administration Records (MAR), training records, building/maintenance checks and any relevant quality assurance documentation. This helped inform our inspection judgements.
