During an inspection looking at part of the service

This visit was to check that the provider had undertaken the actions they said they would complete after our previous visit on 2 March 2013. We spoke with several members of staff who informed us of changes made to the systems used in the service to ensure people's safety and welfare, and observed care being provided in line with the changes and with dignity and respect for people using the service. Staff also told us about changes in their responsibilities, and we saw records of checks confirming these.

We found that care and treatment was planned and delivered in a way that was intended to ensure people's safety and welfare. All care plans had current assessments for the person's health needs, including the risk of falls, pressure care and mobility. We saw that people's wound management plans were accurate and reflected current guidance.

People's medicines were managed to ensure they received the correct medicines at the right time, in the manner prescribed by their doctors. We found that records were maintained accurately and consistently.
