People’s experience of using this service and what we found

Improvements have been made to the governance systems since our last inspection. Quality audits were completed and analysed to identify patterns, learning and changes to the ways of working. Audits included infection prevention and control, medicines and fire safety.

People and staff were positive about the changes within the home. Staff understood their roles and responsibilities. The manager and deputy manager told us they worked well together and were supported by the provider. The provider told us they were committed to maintaining and continuing the improvements within the home.

Rating at last inspection and update

The last rating for this service was requires improvement (published 17 December 2020) and there were multiple breaches of regulation. Following the last inspection, we told the provider when they must be compliant and meet the regulations. At this inspection we found improvements had been made and the provider was no longer in breach of regulations.

Why we inspected

We undertook this targeted inspection to check whether the Warning Notice we previously served in relation to Regulation 17 of the Health and Social Care Act 2008 (Regulated Activities) Regulations 2014 had been met. The overall rating for the service has not changed following this targeted inspection and remains requires improvement.

CQC have introduced targeted inspections to follow up on Warning Notices or to check specific concerns. They do not look at an entire key question, only the part of the key question we are specifically concerned about. Targeted inspections do not change the rating from the previous inspection. This is because they do not assess all areas of a key question.

Follow up

We will continue to monitor information we receive about the service until we return to visit as per our re-inspection programme. If we receive any concerning information we may inspect sooner.
