During an inspection to make sure that the improvements required had been made

Following our last visit to Barnfield Manor on 22 October 2012 we issued a warning notice in respect of the management of medicines to ensure that improvements were made quickly in order to protect people. We also found that people living in the home were not consistently being given opportunities to be involved in their care or treatment and that people�s care and treatment was not always being delivered in a way which met their individual needs.

There were 24 people living at Barnfield Manor at the time of our visit. During our visit we found that some improvements had been made with regards to people�s involvement in their care and the way people were receiving their medicines. However we found that the arrangements for the management of medicines did not protect people living in the home.

We found that since our last visit, the new manager and staff had spent time with people living at Barnfield Manor discussing their care and where possible obtaining their views. This had been done in a way which ensured that, as far as possible, people expressed their views and were involved in making decisions about their care and treatment.
