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 10 January 2017 and was unannounced. The inspection was carried out by two adult social care inspectors, a specialist advisor and an Expert by Experience. An expert-by-experience is a person who has personal experience of using or caring for someone who uses this type of care service.
Before this inspection we reviewed all the information we held about the service. We looked at the notifications we had received for this service. Notifications are information about important events the service is required to send us by law. We spoke with the local authority safeguarding team, and contracts and commissioning team about their views of the service
During the inspection we spoke with the provider, manager, clinical lead manager, team leader, a nurse, seven care staff, chef and a housekeeper. We spoke with 10 people and six peopleâs relatives. We looked at seven peopleâs care records and reviewed medicine administration records.
We observed how staff interacted with people who used the service and monitored how staff supported people during the day by using the Short Observational Framework for Inspection (SOFI). SOFI is a way of observing care to help us understand the experience of people who could not talk to us.
We looked at how the service implemented the Mental Capacity Act 2005 and Deprivation of Liberty code of practice to ensure that when people were deprived of their liberty or assessed as lacking capacity to make their own decisions, actions were taken in line with the legislation.
We also looked at documentation relating to the management and running of the service including policies, records of accidents and incidents. We also looked at staff rotas, three staff files, supervision records, recruitment procedures, training records and team meeting minutes.
