This inspection took place on the 9 December 2015 and was an unannounced inspection.

Rosebank Care Home is a residential care home providing care and support for up to 28 older people. Rosebank specialises in providing care for people living with dementia.

At the last inspection on the 3 June 2015 the service was rated as ‘Good’. After that inspection we received concerns relating to an accident at the home. As a result we undertook a focussed inspection to look into these concerns. This report covers our findings in relation to those requirements. You can read the report from our last comprehensive inspection, by selecting the 'all reports' link for Rosebank Care Home on our website at www.cqc.org.uk .

There was a registered manager in post. A registered manager is a person who has registered with the Care Quality Commission to manage the service. Like registered providers, they are ‘registered persons’. Registered persons have legal responsibility for meeting the requirements in the Health and Social Care Act 2008 and associated Regulations about how the service is run.

The service was safe. Where people were identified as being at risk of falls, risk assessments were in place. Risks to people were assessed in relation to the main staircase. Risk assessments were regularly reviewed.

Staff were aware of the risks to people and followed guidance to reduce the risk. Staff were briefed and kept up to date through handover’s and meetings and were knowledgeable regarding keeping people safe. Staff had also received training in moving and handling and the management of risks.

Stair gates had been fitted to the main staircase which were safe and secure. People and staff were briefed on procedures for use of the stairs and we saw they were familiar with these procedures.

Systems to monitor and review people’s safety were effective. Systems to notify the relevant authorities regarding safety were also in place.

The registered manager had led by example, maintaining the homes open, honest and caring culture. People and staff were supported through meetings, sharing knowledge, information and learning.

Inspection carried out on 10 May 2013

During an inspection looking at part of the service

People were treated with dignity and respect. We spoke with six people. One said �they�re all lovely to me�. We observed care workers offering people a choice of food and drink and supporting people in their activities. We spoke with three relatives. One said �we�re consulted on everything�, another said �the standard of care is excellent�.

We looked at three peoples� files which contained person centred care plans and relevant risk assessments. Where risks had been identified, such as a high risk of falls, people were referred for specialist advice and preventative measures had been put in place. Risk assessments had been referenced in the individual care plans to enable staff to clearly identify what care and treatment to provide.

We spoke with three members of staff who said they felt well supported by the service. We saw evidence in staff files of regular training, supervision and appraisal. One care worker said �I love working here�. Staff kept daily records for each person which detailed how they met people�s emotional and psychological needs as well as what activities they had supported people with.

The service sought feedback via an annual satisfaction survey to people, relatives and staff. We saw there was an audit plan in place. We looked at a recent infection control audit which had resulted in an action plan with changes to procedures and equipment.

Inspection carried out on 18 February 2013

During a routine inspection

During our visit we spoke with four people who told us about their experience of living in the home. We were also able to observe care and the interactions between staff and people using the service.

People we spoke with told us they were happy living in the home and commented that it was �a great place�. We saw staff interacting with people in a respectful manner and supporting them with moving independently around the home. We saw a wide range of activities and social events on offer, including coffee mornings and library visits in the local community. We observed people actively involved in a memory game during our visit.

Staff we spoke with displayed they had a good understanding of the people that they provided care for. We had minor concerns that the care plans did not contain sufficient detailed information to ensure that personalised care would consistently be delivered. We saw evidence of involvement of a range of healthcare professionals in peoples� care. Healthcare professionals that we spoke with were complimentary about the home. We observed that medication was stored, administered and recorded appropriately.

We had minor concerns regarding the process of obtaining and recording consent from people who use the service and share a double occupancy room. We also had minor concerns that the provider did not have systems in place to identify, assess and manage risks associated with the health and welfare of people who used the service.
