Suitable management of services is provided (outcome 24)

Meeting this standard

We checked that people who use this service

  • Have their needs met because it is managed by an appropriate person.

How this check was done

We reviewed all the information we hold about this provider, carried out a visit on 14/10/2011, looked at records of people who use services, talked to staff and talked to people who use services.

Our judgement

The registered provider was considering what direction the service would take once all of the people who use the service had moved out. If the home was to remain as a care home then a registered manager would be appointed to run the home.

User experience

On this occasion we did not speak to people about this outcome area.

Other evidence

At our last review of compliance we found that Bevan House had had three managers in charge of the service since transition from the Care Standards Act to the Health and Social Care Act, October 2010.

Bevan House did not have a manager registered with the Care Quality Commission. Previous managers had not been able to establish themselves, develop good working practices in order to offer the people who used the service a consistent approach to meeting their needs.

The improvement plan stated that the acting manager was recruited on 26th May 2011.

The acting manager remains at the home. The operations manager told us that they and the registered provider were considering what direction the service would take once all of the people who use the service had moved out. If the home was to remain as a care home then a registered manager would be appointed.
