During a routine inspection

In this report the name of a registered manager appears who was not in post and not managing the regulatory activities at this location at the time of the inspection. Their name appears because they were still a Registered Manager on our register at the time.

We spoke with four people who lived in the home and three members of staff. We pathway tracked three people,this involved looking at their care and medication records, and when possible speaking with the person or staff supporting them. We assessed how medicines were handled and stored at the home.

People we spoke with considered their needs were met. Care plan which detailed how people would like support to be provided and actions needed to minimise any risk to them.

There were safe systems in place for managing medicines in the home. Audits were undertaken regularly to ensure people received medicines appropriately.

People were supported by a staff team who had received appropriate training and supervision. Competency assessments for areas such as medications had been carried out prior to a member of staff handling medicines.

The provider had suitable systems in place to assess and monitor the quality of the service provision. This included gathering the views of people who live in the home.

Records required for the running of the home were maintained, up to date and accurate. There were suitable lockable storage facilities for records and passwords if records were held electronically.
