The provider followed safe recruitment practices that ensured only suitable staff worked at the home. Risk assessments were in place to enable people to remain safe and they provided guidance to staff about the risks and how to maintain people’s safety.

Records of accidents and incidents were maintained and actions to help to prevent the re-occurrence of these had been implemented. There were sufficient numbers of staff to attend to the assessed needs of people. Medicines were managed and stored safely and people received their medicines on time and as prescribed by their GP.
