Inspection carried out on 19 February 2013

During a routine inspection

We spoke with five people that used the service. They were all happy with the service. One person told us "It's lovely, I can't speak highly enough of it". Another person told us "There a smashing lot of carers".

We spoke with two staff members who enjoyed their roles and felt well supported.

We saw that people's needs had been assessed and a care plan put in place to ensure that they were met. We saw that people were involved in decisions about their care plan. We found that where risks had been identified that risk assessments had been carried out.

We saw that there were staff based at Kilkenny House throughout the 24 hour period and that people were able to call them if they needed to. We found that the provider calculated the total care hours required and ensured that staffing hours were adequate to met them.

We had concerns about the medication disposal records kept by the service especially those relating to controlled drugs.
