Overview

Inspection carried out on 29 January 2013

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

We carried out this inspection because we needed to check that the provider had made improvements following our inspection in November 2012. We had also been made aware of concerns about the way that the home was managing people’s pressure area care.

We found that the home had made improvements to the way they supported people who were at risk of pressure damage to the skin. However, we found that people were not being given sufficient fluids to drink. This put them at risk of dehydration and other health problems.

The home was providing a wider range of social and leisure activities for people to take part in. One person said, “at least it’s not quite as boring as it was”. The registered manager acknowledged that there was still work to be done in this area.
