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.
The inspection took place on 20 February 2018. The inspection was carried out by two adult social care inspectors and an expert by experience. An expert by experience is a person who has experience of using, or caring for a person who uses this type of service.
Before the inspection we reviewed the information we held about the service. This included past reports and notifications. A notification is information about important events which the service is required to send us by law.
We spoke with five people living at the service. Not everyone we met who was living at St Breock was able to give us their verbal views of the care and support they received due to their health needs. We looked around the premises and observed care practices. We spoke with the registered manager, two representatives for the provider, five staff and a healthcare professional. We spoke with three visitors.
We used the Short Observational Framework for Inspection (SOFI) over the lunch time period. SOFI is a specific way of observing care to help us understand the experience of people who could not talk with us.
We looked at care documentation for five people living at St Breock, medicines records for 31 people, three staff files, training records and other records relating to the management of the service.
