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 site visit took place on 14 and 15 December 2017 and was unannounced. The inspection was carried out by three inspectors on the first day and one inspector and two pharmacy inspectors on the second day.

Before the inspection we reviewed all the information we held about the service. This included notifications the home had sent us. A notification is the means by which providers tell us important information that affects the running of the service and the care people receive. We also reviewed information from monthly reports sent by the provider as part of a condition of registration. We contacted the local authority quality improvement team and safeguarding triage to obtain their views about the service.

We did not request a Provider Information Return. This is information we require providers to send us at least once annually to give some key information about the service, what the service does well and improvements they plan to make. We gathered this information during the inspection.

We spoke with 12 people who used the service and four relatives. We met with two health care professionals who had experience of working with the home and an independent activity worker. We had discussions with nine staff including the chef and activity coordinator.

We spoke with the registered manager, operations director, group chief executive and operations support manager. We reviewed six people’s care files, policies, risk assessments, health and safety records, consent to care and treatment, quality audits and the 2017 resident and relative’s survey results. We observed staff interactions with people, We looked at six staff files, the recruitment process, complaints, training, supervision and appraisal records.

We walked around the building and observed care practice and interaction between care staff and people who live there. We used the Short Observational Framework for Inspection (SOFI) at meal times and during activities. SOFI is a way of observing care to help us understand the experience of people who could not talk with us.

We asked the operations director to send us information after the visit. This included policies and the staff rota. The operations director agreed to submit this by Friday 22 December 2017 and did so via email
