People’s experience of using this service and what we found

At the time of our inspection the service had several staff and housekeeping vacancies and relied on agency staff. Staff told us this placed them under increased pressure and meant that it was more difficult to provide person centred care. The provider and registered manger had already identified staffing as a high priority and were putting measures in place to reduce the risk whilst they developed a more consistent staffing team.

The provider had infection control procedures in place to protect people and prevent the spread of infection. Staff accessed personal protective equipment (PPE) and staff followed the providers guidance and expectation. The provider was developing their paperwork to evidence that visits for people were in accordance with current guidance.

The provider was developing clearer documentation to evidence that risks to people had been identified and managed in areas such as moving and handling, and recruitment.

People had access to a balanced diet and were supported to eat nutritious meals.

At our last inspection we recommended the provider review published guidance about best practice in relation to the provision of access to, and assessment of, oral healthcare in care settings. The provider had made improvements.

People were supported to have maximum choice and control of their lives and staff supported them in the least restrictive way possible and in their best interests; the policies and systems in the service supported this practice.

Rating at last inspection

The last rating for this service was good (published 31 December 2019)

Why we inspected

The inspection was prompted in part due to concerns received about food choices, infection control, staffing and moving and handling.

We reviewed the information we held about the service. No areas of concern were identified in the other key questions. We therefore did not inspect them. Ratings from previous comprehensive inspections for those key questions were used in calculating the overall rating at this inspection.

The overall rating for the service has remained the same. This is based on the findings at this inspection.

We looked at infection prevention and control measures under the Safe key question. We look at this in all care home inspections even if no concerns or risks have been identified. This is to provide assurance that the service can respond to COVID-19 and other infection outbreaks effectively.
