Inspection carried out on 5, 10 September 2014

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

We carried out this inspection to check if the compliance action set at our inspection of 7 April 2014 had been met. At our inspection in April 2014 we found that care plans did not always accurately reflect people’s care needs. Risk assessments did not provide sufficient guidance for staff about how to minimise identified risks. These shortfalls related to records for people living in the care home and records for people in receipt of a domiciliary care package. During this inspection we did not receive any information from people who used the service.

At this inspection because we only looked at care records we were unable to answer all of our five questions. Is the service caring? Is the service responsive? Is the service safe? Is the service effective? Is the service well led?

Below is a summary of what we found. If you wish to see the evidence supporting our summary please read the full report.

From a records perspective we were able to make a judgement that Atlantis Care Home was safe.

We looked at six people’s care plans to check for improvements, four records for people living in the care home and two records for people in receipt of a domiciliary care package. We found that each care plan had been reviewed and updated into a new format and there was a plan in place to keep all care records under regular review. Care plans gave clear instructions for staff to follow to ensure people’s needs and wishes were met.

We found that people were protected from the risk of unsafe or inappropriate care because care plans contained accurate information about how care should be provided by staff to meet people’s needs.
