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 21 February 2017 and was unannounced. The inspection team consisted of two adult social care inspectors.
Before our inspection we reviewed the information we held on the service. This included notifications we had received from the registered provider about incidents that affected the health, safety and welfare of people who lived at the home and previous inspection reports. We also checked to see if any information concerning the care and welfare of people living at the home had been received.
We spoke with a range of people about the service. They included three people who lived at the home, a relative, the registered manager and three members of staff on duty.
We looked round the home and observed staff interactions with people. We looked at care and the medicine records of three people, the previous four weeks of staff rotas, recruitment and staff training records and records relating to the management of the home.
We also spoke with health care professionals, the commissioning department at the local authority and contacted Healthwatch Blackpool prior to our inspection. Healthwatch Blackpool is an independent consumer champion for health and social care. This helped us to gain a balanced overview of what people experienced whilst living at the home.
