Inspection carried out on 9 July 2013

During a routine inspection

We spoke with two people who lived at the home, two members of staff, the manager and one of the providers as part of this inspection.

People told us that they were well cared for by staff. One person said, “Staff are very good – they chat to us and help us when we need it”. We saw good interaction between people who lived at the home and staff on the day of the inspection. Care planning documentation included the information needed by staff to provide the care that people needed.

The home was clean on the day of the inspection but we had concerns about the risk of infection posed by the arrangements in place in the laundry room. Other aspects of the infection control guidance policy needed to be implemented.

We saw that staff were recruited safely and that they worked alongside long standing staff to gain experience before they worked unsupervised with people who lived at the home.

There were sufficient numbers of staff on duty, although staff said that they would have liked more time to spend with people who lived at the home, and people who lived at the home said that they would like more outings.

Monitoring systems were being used to measure the quality of the service that was provided at the home and there were numerous ways for people who lived at the home to express their opinions about the service they received. Staff also had regular meetings.
