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 was an unannounced inspection by one inspector and took place on 19 and 20 June 2017.

Before the inspection, the provider completed 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. We reviewed the information we held about the home, including previous inspection reports. We contacted the local authority to obtain their views about the care provided. We considered the information which had been shared with us by the local authority and other people, looked at safeguarding alerts which had been made and notifications which had been submitted. A notification is information about important events which the provider is required to tell us about by law.

We met with all the people who lived at The Park Beck. This helped us understand the experience of people who could not talk with us. As some people had difficulties in verbal communication we spent time sitting and observing people in areas throughout the home and were able to see the interaction between people and staff. This helped us understand the experience of people who could not talk with us. We also used 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 with us.

We looked around the home, including the bathrooms, sluice rooms and some people’s bedrooms. We spoke with nine staff including the registered and deputy manager and the cook. The nominated individual was also present throughout the inspection. A nominated individual is the responsible person within the organisation. They have responsibility for supervising the management of the carrying on of the regulated activity. They speak authoritatively, on behalf of the organisation, about the way that the regulated activity is provided.

We reviewed a variety of documents which included five care plans and risk assessments along with other relevant documentation to support our findings. We ‘pathway tracked’ people living at the home. This is when we looked at their care documentation in depth and obtained their views on their life at the home. It is an important part of our inspection, as it allowed us to capture information about a sample of people receiving care.

During the inspection we reviewed the records of the home. These included information in regards to the upkeep of the premises, staff recruitment, training and supervision records, medicine records complaint records, accidents and incidents, quality audits and policies and procedures.
