Why we inspected: This inspection was a scheduled inspection based on the previous rating.

People’s experience of using this service:

People were happy with the care and support they received at Cosham Court Nursing Home. Feedback from visitors and involved professionals was positive and we observed kind, compassionate interactions between staff and people during our inspection.

People received a safe service because the provider had systems and processes which helped to minimise risks. This included safe recruitment procedures and training for staff about how to recognise and report suspicions of abuse.

Staff were well trained and knew people and their individual needs. This meant that care was planned and delivered effectively.

People were supported to have maximum choice and control of their lives and staff supported them in the least restrictive way possible; the policies and systems in the service supported this practice.

People’s care records showed that their support was reviewed at least monthly and was therefore responsive to changing needs. People were supported by staff to engage in a range of social opportunities which included some group activities, one to one time with staff and a range of visits from external providers.

Leadership was visible and promoted good teamwork. People, professionals and staff spoke positively about the management and staff had a clear understanding of their roles and responsibilities.

Follow up: We will continue to monitor intelligence we receive about the service until we return to visit as per our re-inspection programme. If any concerning information is received we may inspect sooner.
