Overview

Inspection carried out on 2 May 2013

During an inspection looking at part of the service

This inspection was to follow up on shortfalls we identified in our previous inspection in medicines management and record keeping. Whilst we were there we looked at other outcomes as part of our routine inspection work.

We spoke with four people who used the service and three staff. People told us they thought the care was good. One person said �it�s very good here. They help you to be independent.� Another person told us �I have no complaints. I can go out when I want. That�s important to me.�

We observed staff were patient and kind. All staff interacted spontaneously with people to share a joke or offer a compliment. People seemed relaxed. They moved around the home freely and used all communal areas.

We observed people were involved in decisions about their care. The manager had made appropriate referrals to the relevant authorities when they had concerns about a person�s mental capacity.

People told us they enjoyed the food. The menu was varied, offered choice and included meat, fish, vegetables and salad.

People�s records were regularly updated and overall included enough information for staff to assist people with their care needs.

We found people�s medicines records were accurately completed. Medicines were stored safely. Staff had received appropriate training to administer medicines.
