Background to this inspection

Updated 5 March 2022

We carried out this inspection under Section 60 of the Health and Social Care Act 2008 as part of our regulatory functions. This inspection was planned to check whether the provider is meeting the legal requirements and regulations associated with the Health and Social Care Act 2008.

As part of CQC’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic we are looking at how services manage infection control and visiting arrangements. This was a targeted inspection looking at the infection prevention and control measures the provider had in place. We also asked the provider about any staffing pressures the service was experiencing and whether this was having an impact on the service.

This inspection took place on 9 February 2022 and was unannounced.

Overall inspection


Updated 5 March 2022

About the service: Westwood is a residential care home that provides personal and nursing care for up to 24 people. At the time of our inspection 22 people lived in the service. Two people were in hospital but were expected to return to the service.

People’s experience of using this service:

People that we spoke to said that Westwood was a good place to live and that staff treated them with respect and kindness.

People’s health and social care needs were managed well by management and the staff team. There were positive relationships with professionals which supported people’s overall wellbeing.

Medicine was administered safely and there were clear protocols in place for medicine which was taken when required. Records were kept up to date and medication administration records (MAR) were all correct and checked by staff and the registered manager.

The registered manager showed evidence of ongoing quality monitoring across all aspects of the service. Any concerns raised by residents’ relatives or staff were investigated and addressed. This was also used to inform improved practices throughout the home.

People had enough to eat and drink. People were offered choices and had an input into the menu planning. The lunchtime experience was relaxed, and staff helped with serving meals and assisting people where necessary.

There were a variety of activities, both to keep people occupied and to entertain them. There were also physical activities to assist with people’s mobility. People were consulted on what they wanted to do, giving people choice and control.
