Background to this inspection

Updated 13 June 2018

We carried out this inspection under Section 60 of the Health and Social Care Act 2008 as part of our regulatory functions. This inspection was planned to check whether the provider is meeting the legal requirements and regulations associated with the Health and Social Care Act 2008, to look at the overall quality of the service, and to provide a rating for the service under the Care Act 2014.

This inspection took place on 16 May 2018. It was unannounced and was carried out by one inspector.

We used information the provider sent us in the Provider Information Return (PIR). This is information we require providers to send us to give some key information about the service, what the service does well and improvements they plan to make. Prior to the inspection we looked at the PIR and all the information we had collected about the service. This included previous inspection reports, information received and notifications the service had sent us. A notification is information about important events which the service is required to tell us about by law.

We spoke with the registered manager and deputy manager. We also spoke with five people who live at the home and four care workers. As part of the inspection we sought feedback from nine community professionals and received responses from four.

We looked at three people's care plans, daily notes, monitoring records and medicine administration sheets. We saw staff recruitment files for three staff members who had been employed since our last inspection and the recruitment profiles of agency staff. We reviewed a number of other documents relating to the management of the service. For example, staff training records, staff supervision and appraisal log, premises safety records, legionella and fire risk assessments, audits, staff meeting minutes, compliments and concerns records.

Overall inspection


Updated 13 June 2018

This inspection took place on 16 May 2018 and was unannounced.

Staverton is a care home without nursing that provides a service to up to 14 people with learning disabilities and/or autistic spectrum disorder. The accommodation is arranged over three floors. At the time of our inspection there were 13 people living at the service.

At our last inspection we rated the service good. At this inspection we found the evidence continued to support the rating of good and there was no evidence or information from our inspection and ongoing monitoring that demonstrated serious risks or concerns. This inspection report is written in a shorter format because our overall rating of the service has not changed since our last inspection.

At this inspection we found the service remained Good.
