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

In this report the name of a registered manager appears who was not in post at the time of the inspection. Their name appears because they were still a Registered Manager on our register at the time.

We carried out this inspection so that we could check whether the provider had made the required improvements to ensure that medicines were managed safely. We also had information that people's care needs had not always been fully met.

We found that people's care needs had been assessed and plans had been put into place to manage their needs. People told us that the care at the home was, "very good indeed" and, "as good as you'd get anywhere".

There was evidence that measures to prevent infection were not effective. We found that people might have been put at risk because staff were not following good practice about disposal of potentially infected waste.

We found that the improvements to the management of medicines had not been made. Staff were not ensuring that the risks associated with medicines were managed safely.

We found that medicines were not being stored safely. There was no way of checking whether or not people had received their medicines as prescribed. Medicines were not being disposed of appropriately. There was no evidence that staff had been trained or assessed as competent to give medicines.
