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 7 and 8 February 2017 and was unannounced on the first day. It was carried out by one adult social care inspector on the first day and two adult social care inspectors on the second day.
We reviewed the Provider Information Record (PIR) before the inspection. The PIR is a form that asks the provider to give some key information about the service, what the service does well and the improvements they plan to make. We also looked at notifications sent in by the service. A notification is information about important events which the service is required to tell us about by law. We looked at previous inspection reports and other information we held about the home before we visited.
During the inspection we spoke with 19 people. We spoke with the peripatetic manager and another nine members of staff. We looked at a sample of records relating to the running of the home and to the care of individuals. These included the care records of six people who lived at the home. We also looked at three staff recruitment files and records relating to the management and administration of peopleâs medicines, health and safety and quality assurance.
