Overview

Inspection carried out on 15 February 2014

During a routine inspection

We met with five people who lived at Kanner Project, spoke with five staff and looked at people's care records and staff files.

We found that Kanner Project ensured the correct legal processes were followed where people did not have capacity to consent to aspects of their care and treatment. This ensured their human rights were protected and care and support provided was in people's best interests.

People's needs were assessed and their care planned according to their needs. Health and social care professionals and family where appropriate were involved in people's care.

People received a healthy, nutritious diet. Referrals to dieticians were made to support people to eat a well balanced diet when required.

Staff regularly had one to one meetings with their manager or a senior colleague and the staff team felt supported. Staff had access to an on-going training programme to support their professional development.

There was a complaints policy and process in place at Kanner Project. There had not been any complaints over the past twelve months for us to review.
