Overview

Inspection carried out on 24 March 2013

During a routine inspection

We spoke with three people who used the service and they told us that they were happy living in the home. Two people told us how they still missed their home but were now adjusting to Alton House. They told us it was "like one big family." One person told us how they would like to have more activities. Another person told us: "I like being here."

On the day of our inspection, we found there was not an effective operation of systems to assess the risk of and to prevent, detect and control the spread of health associated infection. For example, we found pressure cushions and matresses that were soiled.
