Inspection carried out on 7 June 2013

During an inspection to make sure that the improvements required had been made

At our inspection on 07 June 2013 we followed up compliance and enforcement action that we had taken following our inspection on 02 April 2013. We had asked the provider to make improvements to the way in which people's needs were assessed and their care planned and delivered. We also required that they make improvements in areas relating to staff training and supervision; the quality monitoring of the service; management of medicines and record keeping in the home.

People we spoke with were generally happy with the care they received. One person told us the staff were "fine", another person told us "they help me when I need them" and that they enjoyed the food on offer in the home. We saw that interactions between staff and people living in the home were relaxed and friendly.

We found that suitable improvements had been made in some areas. Staff had been supported in their roles through training and supervision. Records were stored securely and could be located promptly when requested. However we also found that people were at risk of unsafe or inappropriate care because their needs had not always been adequately assessed and care had not always been properly planned.

The provider had undertaken audits in a number of areas within the home and had acted where any issues had been found. Improvements had been made to the way medicines were managed although some problems remained regarding the recording of medication.
