Inspection carried out on 24 May 2013

During a routine inspection

During our inspection we spoke with six people who used the service, five relatives, four members of staff and the manager. People told us they were happy with the care they received. One person told us, �I am okay here, I think they look after me well.� A visitor said, �It has got potential, the care is good.� We found that people were treated with dignity and respect. Their individuality was recognised and they were supported to make their own choices.

We saw that people�s care records contained up to date information. This meant that information was recorded accurately to guide staff on how to support people.

During our last inspection in August 2012 we found medication management needed improvement. On this inspection we saw that suitable systems were still not in place. This meant the required improvements had not been made.

We saw that staff engaged with people in a friendly manner and people told us suitable care and support were provided. Some people including visitors and staff considered there were not always sufficient staff on duty to meet the needs of people using the service.

The home does not have a registered manager in place as required in The Care Quality Commission (Registration) Regulations 2009. We will be contacting the provider about this.
