During an inspection looking at part of the service

We carried out this visit to check if shortfalls found at our inspection in November 2013 had been met. Our inspection of 7 November 2013 found when a person's capacity to consent was unclear, due to their having an illness such as dementia, legal requirements had not always been met. The provider wrote to us and told us mental capacity assessments would be completed for people where they may lack capacity and these would be kept under regular review. Where people were assessed as lacking mental capacity for specific decisions consent would be sought from appropriate relatives and professionals. The provider told us these changes would be implemented by 30 January 2014.

At this visit we found the compliance action set in November 2013 had been met. We looked at the care records for five people and found assessments of individual�s overall mental capacity and their ability to make specific day-to-day decisions had been completed. We saw where significant decisions needed to be made for people best interest meetings had taken place, involving other professionals as well as family members and advocates.

We also checked how the home was staffed because we had received information raising concerns about inadequate staffing levels. We looked at staff rotas, spoke with staff and observed people during a lunchtime period. We found there were enough qualified, skilled and experienced staff to meet people�s needs.
