Inspection carried out on 16 April 2014

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

Since our previous inspection on 16 February 2014, we found that actions had been taken by the provider to ensure that records for people and staff were accurate and fit for purpose. This meant that people were not placed at risk of receiving inappropriate care

The registered manager told us, "Every aspect of each person’s care is reviewed every month when they are resident of the day. At that time I ensure that only up to date, relevant documents are in people’s care plans. Everything else is archived in the manager’s office and kept under lock and key. Staff now sign regularly to confirm that they have read the file and understand the person’s care needs". This meant that the provider had introduced a process designed to ensure that staff were working only with current information which had been regularly updated.

We saw that staff records had been filed alphabetically, were structured and easy to navigate. The records indicated that effective recruitment checks and procedures had been carried out. This meant that people were likely to receive safe care because the provider had clearly documented care records and staff records which were current, easily located and fit for purpose.
