Inspection carried out on 26 November 2013

During a routine inspection

People who used the service told us they liked the home and that it was clean and tidy. Specific comments made included; �it is very clean here, we have a very good cleaner who is always on the go�, �they keep it lovely and clean which is important to me, I wouldn�t like it here if it wasn�t clean� and �I stay in my room but every day someone comes and tidies and cleans it for me. They do it just the way I like it�.

We observed the home was clean, tidy and hygienic. Staff and people who used the service told us a member of staff carried out cleaning duties five days a week and at the weekends care workers included cleaning tasks in their role. One member of staff told us "we all work as a team and help each other, that makes sure the home is always clean".

Since our last inspection, we found improvements had been made to reduce the risk of cross infection and promote the control of infection within the home. For example, the procedures for cleaning commodes were specific and care workers were not wearing jewellery in the home.
