People’s experience of using this service and what we found

During the inspection we were made aware of a specific incident. Following which a person using the service sustained a serious injury. This incident is subject to an investigation by the Safeguarding authority. As a result, this inspection did not examine the circumstances of the incident.

This inspection examined those risks and were satisfied that the provider had taken appropriate actions to reduce any further risks to people

People and relatives were very complimentary about the caring nature of the staff and management team at the service. Our observations confirmed this. There were sufficient staff at the service to support people with the needs. Staff were aware of the risks associated with people’s care and ensured that people were provided the most appropriate care.

People received their medicines when needed. People were supported to have maximum choice and control of their lives and staff them in the least restrictive way possible and in their best interests; the policies and systems in the service supported this practice.

Appropriate training was provided to staff in relation to their role and were encouraged to progress. Staff were valued and had opportunities to win employee of the month to celebrate their good work.

People were supported and encouraged to remain as independent as possible and were involved in decisions around their care. There were times where people felt that staff went above and beyond what was expected of them and were appreciative of this.

The management were looking to improve activities however people did enjoy the ones that took place. People who were cared for in their rooms had one to one activities provided and were protected from the risk of social isolation. Care plans were planned around people’s health care needs.
