We carried out this inspection under Section 60 of the Health and Social Care Act 2008 as part of our regulatory functions. This inspection checked 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 15 November 2017 and was unannounced. The inspection team consisted of two inspectors and a specialist advisor. The specialist advisor was a nurse.

Before the inspection, we requested that the provider complete a 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. This was received from the provider.

We also reviewed information that we held about the service. Providers are required to notify the Care Quality Commission about events and incidents that occur including unexpected deaths, injuries to people receiving care and safeguarding matters. Before the inspection we reviewed information that we held about the service such as notifications, which are events which happened in the service that the provider is required to tell us about, and information that had been sent to us by other agencies. We also contacted commissioners (who fund the care for some people) of the service and asked them for their views.

We looked at the care records of four people in detail to check they were receiving their care as planned. We also looked at records including staff recruitment files, training records, meeting minutes, medication records and quality assurance records. We spoke with ten people who live in the home, seven members of care staff, a nurse, the chef, maintenance staff member, the deputy manager and the registered manager as well as one of the regional managers of the provider company. We also spoke with relatives of six people currently living in the home and another visitor.
