Overview

Inspection carried out on 13 May 2013

During a routine inspection

People we spoke with said they were looked after well and felt safe living at Tudor Bank. Some people were unable to verbally communicate with us; however we observed members staff being sensitive, respectful and attentive to peoples needs. One person living at Tudor Bank said, “I have no complaints and I feel safe living here” and “The staff are very good.”

One visiting relative told us, “I can’t fault it here. The staff are helpful and very nice” and “I feel that (name) is safe here.”

The care records we observed were well organised and included detailed assessments of individual’s needs, risk assessments and strategies to manage those risks.

During our visit to Tudor Bank a pharmacist inspector carried out a medicines inspection. It was found that the home had systems in place for the safe administration of medication. The pharmacist inspector looked at the personal care and treatment records of eight people who use the service, spoke with Registered Nurses, care workers and people living in the home.

We saw that staff had been provided with up to date and relevant training, which helped to ensure that members of staff were suitably trained and skilled to meet people's needs.
