Inspection carried out on 29 April 2013

During a routine inspection

Almost all of the people living at Barnfield Manor were living with dementia and as such were not able to have meaningful conversations with us about their experiences or feelings. We have therefore used Short Observational Framework for Inspection (SOFI) to inform our judgements. SOFI is a specific way of observing care to help us understand the experience of people who could not talk with us.

During our last inspection in January 2013 we found that people�s care and treatment was not always planned in a way which met their individual needs. We also found that the provider did not have appropriate arrangements in place for the management of medicines.

There were 27 people living at Barnfield Manor at the time of our inspection. This included one person who moved into the home on the day of our visit. We observed that people were not always receiving appropriate support and supervision from staff.

We found that people's care and treatment were not consistently planned and delivered in a way which met their needs or protected their safety and welfare. People�s care plans did not always reflect changes to their needs.

We also found that most of the improvements that had previously been made in the safe handling of medicines had not been sustained. We found that people did not always received their medicines because they were out of stock and that people's medicines records were not completed correctly.
