Inspection carried out on 26 September 2014

During an inspection to make sure that the improvements required had been made

During our visit of 29 May 2014 we found that people were not always protected from the risk of infection because appropriate guidance or equipment was not in place. Also people were not protected against the risks associated with medicines because the provider had not ensured that appropriate arrangements were in place for the training of staff. The home sent us information on 26 June 2014, which set out the plan of action that they would take to improve the service.

At our visit to the home on 26 September 2014 we found that an infection control lead had been appointed to oversee the practices in the home and to ensure that appropriate equipment and guidance was in place for staff. All staff had received training in how to administer medicines safely. Audits had been developed but had not yet commenced to ensure that practices in relation to infection control and medicines administration were maintained to a satisfactory standard.
