Inspection carried out on 4 November 2013

During an inspection looking at part of the service

This inspection was unannounced which meant the provider and the staff did not know we were coming. We spoke with five people using the service, four visitors and three staff. At our last inspection in June 2013 we made three compliance actions in relation to staffing, quality assurance and the management of medicines. This meant the provider needed to make improvements in these areas to demonstrate they were fully protecting people using their service.

During this inspection we found that suitable and sufficient improvements had been made where we had identified concerns. We saw the provider had put right what was required. This meant the provider could demonstrate people�s medication was handled safely, there were sufficient staff to support people, and there were systems in place to assess the quality of the service provided.

People we spoke with were happy with the care and support they received, one person using the service said, �The staff are great. They help you; they don't see you stuck for anything.�

On this inspection we also checked to make sure people were suitably fed and hydrated. We looked at records to make sure these were stored securely and held the information required. People liked the meals offered and we saw suitable records were in place.
