People’s experience of using this service and what we found

The provider had made improvements to the service and had met the warning notice in relation to Regulation 12 (Safe care and treatment).

The service now had improved the systems in place to prevent and control infection. Staff had received training in preventing and controlling infection. The registered manager had a program of refurbishment in place and stained and worn flooring was being replaced.

The provider had met the warning notice in relation to Regulation 17 (Good governance). There were improved systems in place to monitor the quality and effectiveness of the service.

Rating at last inspection and update:

The last rating for this service was inadequate (published 06 August 2021) and there were three breaches of regulation.

We served two warning notices in relation to Regulation 12 (Safe care and treatment) and Regulation 17 (Good governance). At this inspection we found improvements had been made.

Why we inspected

We undertook this targeted inspection to check whether the Warning Notices we previously served in relation to Regulation 12 of the Health and Social Care Act 2008 (Regulated Activities) and Regulation 17 (Good governance) Regulations 2014 had been met. The overall rating for the service has not changed following this targeted inspection and remains inadequate.

CQC have introduced targeted inspections to follow up on Warning Notices or to check specific concerns. They do not look at an entire key question, only the part of the key question we are specifically concerned about. Targeted inspections do not change the rating from the previous inspection. This is because they do not assess all areas of a key question.

Follow up

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

Special Measures

For adult social care services, the maximum time for being in special measures will usually be no more than 12 months. If the service has demonstrated improvements when we inspect it and it is no longer rated as inadequate for any of the five key questions it will no longer be in special measures.

If the provider has not made enough improvement within this timeframe. And there is still a rating of inadequate for any key question or overall rating, we will take action in line with our enforcement procedures. This will mean we will begin the process of preventing the provider from operating this service. This will usually lead to cancellation of their registration or to varying the conditions the registration.

For adult social care services, the maximum time for being in special measures will usually be no more than 12 months. If the service has demonstrated improvements when we inspect it.
