Overview

Inspection carried out on 27 August 2013

During an inspection looking at part of the service

On the day we inspected there were 15 people living at the home. During our inspection we spoke with three staff and two people who use the service.

We carried out an inspection on 6 June 2013 when we identified that people were not always protected against the risks associated with medicines. The provider wrote to us telling us what action they would take.

We carried out an inspection on 27 August 2013 to review the progress the provider had made in taking action to be compliant in the area where we had previously assessed them as non-compliant.

We found that the provider had taken steps to improve administration and recording of medicines.

Staff told us of the medicine adminstration policies, new records and training that had been introduced following our visit.

People we spoke with were happy at the home and we observed that staff intervened and offered support when needed in a sensitive manner.
