Overview

Inspection carried out on 17, 30 December 2010

During an inspection in response to concerns

We spent time at Stretton Nursing Home observing the care that people receive. People who live at Stretton Nursing Home told us that they receive good care from kind and caring staff. However, some relatives had raised concerns that people did not always have their needs met as they should have been, and we found that these concerns were justified.

We saw that staff treated people individually with respect and took care to protect people's privacy and dignity. However, some of the practices at the home promoted an institutional approach to meeting people's needs, for example, the use of blue plastic aprons to protect people's clothing at meal times.

Some people were not receiving care that met their needs. For example, people's nutritional needs were not always managed safely, and the home did not always ensure that people were protected from the risk of developing pressure sores.
