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

We spoke to one person living at the home. He told us that staff had supported him when he had a recent operation and that he had now recovered.

We spoke to the provider and a staff member and looked at health and medication records to find the evidence that the home had made improvements to medication and health records.

We found that people's health needs were being met. There was information on each person's medical history so that staff knew their health needs. Staff supported people by going with them to their medical appointments and keeping clear records of their appointments and health support needs.

There was clear information for staff about people's medicines, what they are prescribed for and what were possible side effects. The provider had given staff written guidance about how they should support people to take their prescribed medication safely. Medication charts were clear and accurate. We found that people were protected against the risks associated with medicines because the provider had appropriate arrangements in place to manage medicines.
