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 19 December 2017 and was unannounced.
The inspection team included two inspectors, one specialist professional nursing advisor and an expert by experience (ExE). An ExE is a person who has personal experience of using or caring for someone who uses this type of service.
We reviewed the Provider Information Return (PIR). This is a form that asks the provider to give some key information about the service, what the service does well and improvements they plan to make.
We contacted commissioners and asked them for their views about the service. Commissioners are people who work to find appropriate care and support services which are paid for by the local authority.
The inspection was informed by the information we held about the service. This included statutory notifications the provider had sent us. A statutory notification is information about important events which the provider is required to send to us by law. We reviewed the providerâs statement of purpose. A statement of purpose is a document which includes a standard required set of information about a service.
We spent time observing care and support in the communal areas. We observed how staff interacted with people who used the service. We also spoke with four people using the service and eight relatives. We did this to gain people's views about the care and to check that standards of care were being met. We also spoke with the registered manager, a nurse, four care staff, Cook and two visiting professionals. Prior to the inspection visit we contacted a health and social care professional and sought their views of the service.
We reviewed records which included three peopleâs care records to see how their care and treatment was planned and delivered. We reviewed five staff employment records and other records which related to the management of the service such as quality assurance, staff training records and policies and procedures.
