Inspection carried out on 21 November 2012

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

At our inspection on 26 July 2012 we found concerns in relation to the consent and recording processes in place at Whitstone House.

The purpose of this inspection, carried out on 21 November 2012, was to ensure that improvements had been made. We found that they had.

We found that the manager of the home had put in place processes which would ensure people were able to consent to their care and treatment and that should a person�s mental capacity need to be assessed in relation to a specific decision, records were in place to show how specific decisions had been reached.

We also saw records which demonstrated significant improvements in the way in which safeguarding referrals are recorded and monitored by the service.
