Overview

Inspection carried out on 18 January 2014

During a routine inspection

We found that the home was clean and tidy and people told us they found their rooms to be comfortable and warm.

People were generally complimentary about the care and support they received from staff and we saw their privacy and dignity was respected.

People told us they were able to make their own choices and decisions. Where they were unable to do so we saw there were procedures in place for staff to follow. Records however, were not always in evidence to support when decisions had been made in people's best interest. This had the potential for people's rights to be overlooked.

Care records were well maintained and people or their representatives we spoke with told us they knew about them and of their rights to see them if they wished.

Medication was stored securely and people told us they received it regularly and on time. Staff practices when administering and recording the administration of medicines did not consistently ensure people's safety.

The majority of people made complimentary comments about the care provided by staff. For example, "They are first rate". Comments varied as to whether there was always sufficient staff on duty to ensure people received prompt support and care.

Personal records were stored securely, however some records had not been fully completed. This meant there was a risk people's needs may not be known and respected by staff.
