People’s experience of using this service and what we found

People's experience of using the service was positive. People received the care and support they needed when required. People said they were supported by the same carers most of the time. People and family members told us staff were helpful and kind and treated people with dignity and respect. Positive relationships had been developed between staff and people they supported.

All the people we spoke with told us they felt safe living at Manchester House. We were told, “Staff are excellent” and “I like living here, It’s a good place.” One relative told us how their loved one had improved overall following admission to the service.

People reported good support regarding the management of their medicines and told us they got their medicines on time. The medications records we looked at were clear and supported best practice. Staff administering medicines were suitably trained and competent.

Risks associated with people’s care were identified and managed to minimise harm. The service supported a wide range of people with complex and diverse nursing care needs. Supporting care records mostly identified risks clearly and there were plans in place to help keep people safe.

The service was following good practice guidance regarding the management of COVID-19 and maintaining standards of hygiene and infection control.

Following the last registered manager leaving, a senior manager for the provider was running the service and providing effective leadership. A new manager had been appointed and was due to start in the New Year.

The provider’s governance systems and organisational structure was well developed and provided effective monitoring and support for the service.
