Inspection carried out on 2 April 2013

During a routine inspection

People we spoke with told us they felt "well looked after" by staff working in the home. One relative we spoke with described their loved one as being "more content" since they had moved in. They felt that staff were "considerate" and had the necessary skills to care for people living in the home.

Staff we spoke with had a good understanding of safeguarding of vulnerable adults but had not always been adequately supported in their roles through training and supervision, in line with the provider's own requirements. Medication was not always stored securely and was not always administered in the way that had been prescribed.

We also found that people's care had not always been adequately planned and assessments of peoples' needs were not always consistent. Records were not always fit for purpose or securely stored and could not always be promptly located when required. Whilst the provider had a system in place to monitor key areas relating to the health, safety and welfare of people living in the home, regular checks were not being made in line with the provider's own schedule.
