How this check was done

We looked at the personal care or treatment records of people who use the service, carried out a visit on 4 October 2012, observed how people were being cared for and checked how people were cared for at each stage of their treatment and care. We talked with people who use the service, talked with carers and / or family members and talked with staff.

Our judgement

Care plans and risk assessments for people at The Risings were detailed and up to date.

We found that people experienced care and support that met their needs and protected their welfare.

Reasons for our judgement

We saw three care files, and spoke with staff about the planning and delivery of care at The Risings.

We saw care plans included detailed information about people’s needs and how they preferred to be supported. We also saw that care plans were reviewed regularly, and that they had been updated with any changes to the person’s care. We saw detailed records were made of medical appointments, people’s weight and personal care. This meant that people's care needs were kept up to date, and that staff were able to support them appropriately.

We found that health and safety checks were completed regularly by the manager, and that fire training and drills were up to date. This ensured that the home environment was safe for people living at The Risings.

We found the any risks to people had been assessed, including risk of falls, mobility, nutrition and the risk of pressure sores. We saw health profiles for people with information about any conditions that needed to be monitored. This helped to ensure that people were not at risk of unsafe or inappropriate care.

The assessment and care planning systems used met people’s individual needs and ensured their welfare
