Inspection carried out on 18 June 2013

During a routine inspection

There were 17 people living in the home on the day we visited. Atlantis Care Home also provided care to 10 people in their own homes. There was a different staff group who provided care and support to people in their homes than the group that provided care and support in the care home.

During our inspection we spoke with the registered manager about the care and support they provided. We also spoke to the administrator about training. We spoke to two staff and briefly to a visiting community psychiatric nurse and care co-ordinator from adult care, health and wellbeing (social services).

We observed staff helped people in a discreet manner and spoke to people with respect. We saw call bells were answered very promptly.

We saw care plans were detailed and directed staff as to the care and support people needed. They had been regularly reviewed. We were told about the range of activities available in the home.

People who used the service were protected from the risk of abuse, because the provider had taken reasonable steps to identify the possibility of abuse and prevent abuse from happening

Medicines were handled appropriately, kept safely, safely administered and were disposed of appropriately.

We saw the provider had effective systems in place to assess the quality of the service provided.

The home was clean and tidy, with light and spacious communal areas.
