During an inspection looking at part of the service

This was an unannounced inspection which was carried out as part of our schedule of inspections. We also monitored compliance with actions made at the last inspection in August 2012. Compliance actions related to infection control procedures, safety and suitability of the premises and recruitment procedures. We found that all actions had been complied with.

During our inspection spoke with four people living in the home, four members of staff and one of the providers.

People had their needs assessed and care plans were developed with people's involvement to ensure needs were met. When risks had been identified, such as falls, there was appropriate guidance and interventions in place to minimise this. People told us they felt safe in the home and their needs were met.

Significant improvements had been made in infection control procedures within the home. Specialist advice had been sought and acted upon. Actions plans had been implemented following an audit to minimise these risks. All staff had received refresher training and had had 'spot checks' on their practice to ensure they were competent in controlling infection.

A major decoration programme had been implemented, with the aim of completely redecorating and refurbishing areas of the home. The provider said they aimed to complete this over the next twelve months.

The provider had suitable arrangements in place to monitor the quality of the service provision and risks to people.
