Inspection Summary


Overall summary & rating

Good

Updated 8 June 2017

Jasmine House is a residential care home which provides support for up to seven adults who have learning disabilities. The home is situated in a residential area of Fazakerley, close to local amenities. The home has seven separate bedrooms, shower rooms and bathrooms, two lounge areas, dining area, kitchen area, conservatory, large rear garden and an activity centre. The home provides accommodation over three floors and has been adapted to support people who are physically disabled.

At the last inspection, in January 2015 the service was rated Good, with the ‘Effective’ domain rated as ‘Outstanding’.

At this inspection we found the service remained Good, with the effective domain continuing to remain outstanding.

The home operated within the principles of the Mental Capacity Act 2005 (MCA) and the Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DoLS). We were provided with information in relation to capacity assessments and processes which needed to be in place to make decisions in a person’s best interest. People were supported to have maximum choice and control of their lives and staff support them in the least restrictive way possible; the policies and systems in the service supported this practice.

Medication was administered safely by staff who had received the appropriate training. Medication records were accurate, medication audits and competency assessments were conducted on a monthly basis, systems were in place to order repeat medication, dispose of medication and annual medication reviews were conducted for all people who lived at the home.

All care files contained individual care plans and risk assessments which were regularly reviewed and updated in order to minimise risk. Care plans were person centred and contained relevant information in relation to a person’s wishes, choices and preferences.

Risk assessments were in place for all seven people who lived at the home. The assessments offered key information about significant areas of risk and how such situations would need to be managed for the safety of everyone living at the home.

Staff expressed how they were fully supported in their roles; they had completed all mandatory training as well as specialist training in order to fulfil their roles effectively. Staff were receiving regular supervisions as well as annual appraisals.

A formal complaints process was visible around the home but relatives explained that any complaints or concerns could be openly discussed with the staff and managers as and when they needed to be.

The registered manager had a number of different systems in place to assess and monitor the quality of the home, ensuring that people were receiving safe, compassionate and effective care. Such systems included weekly, monthly, annual audits, staff and ‘resident meetings’ as well as resident questionnaires, stakeholder surveys and relevant health and safety and infection control checks.
