Overview

Inspection carried out on 2 October 2013

During an inspection looking at part of the service

We completed a follow up inspection to the service by unannounced visits to the service on 1st and 10th October 2013. This was because at the previous inspection on the 14th May 2013 we found that medicines storage arrangements were not safe and secure, and the environment was not always suitably and adequately maintained. At this inspection, we saw new locks were supplied on the medicine cabinet which made them secure. We saw that new flooring was supplied to replace old and worn carpets and the environment was clean and maintained to a satisfactory standard.

On 14th May we also found that people were not fully protected from the risks of unsafe or inappropriate care and treatment because there were some inconsistencies in recording. On this inspection we examined records, and spoke with external mental health professionals. The professionals we spoke with told us people using the service progressed well from the support received and that documentation presented was generally satisfactory. On this inspection we saw that record keeping had improved and become more consistent.
