Overview

Inspection carried out on 7 February 2014

During an inspection looking at part of the service

On this occasion, we did not speak with people using the service as part of our inspection. We found the provider had made improvements, and appropriate arrangements were in place to ensure that people were fully consented regarding their care and treatment. People�s care was planned and delivered in line with their assessed care needs.

People were assessed regarding their ability to consent, and others such as family and healthcare professionals were involved in helping them to make decisions when necessary. All staff had received training in the process for ensuring people were consented about their care, and the process for involving them and others on their behalf in important decisions.

The provider�s policy had been updated regarding new admissions, and ensured that care assessments and plans for supporting peoples care needs were put in place before they came to live at the home. Staff told us they were updated regularly about people�s care needs and they now read and signed people�s care plans to show they understood how to safely provide support.
