Overview

Inspection carried out on 24 May 2013

During a routine inspection

People told us they were happy living at Beaumont Court and their care needs were met. One person said, "I like living here, yes I do, yes." Another person told us, "I like it here and the staff are alright."

People told us their consent was obtained before care was delivered and staff acted in accordance with their wishes. Where people did not have the capacity to consent we found the provider acted in accordance with legal requirements.

We found that people's care needs were assessed and their care and treatment was planned. People received care which reduced the risk of poor nutrition and dehydration. Where necessary external healthcare professionals had been consulted about people's dietary concerns.

We saw that people had enough equipment available to enable them to maintain their independence as much as possible and this equipment was suitably maintained.

We found the provider had a structured staff selection and recruitment policy in place which aimed to ensure staff were suitably skilled, experienced and qualified to deliver care safely.

At this inspection we also checked whether previous shortfalls in the management of cleanliness and infection, and the maintenance of records had been addressed. These issues had been identified during our last inspection at the service on 29 October 2012. We found improvements had been made and the risks associated with infection and the maintenance of records had been reduced.
