Overview

Inspection carried out on 26 March 2014

During an inspection looking at part of the service

At our last inspection we found this home was not compliant in relation to medication. The home put an action plan in place following this. At this inspection we found the home had addressed issues and were compliant.

We spoke with five people about their medication. One person told us �oh yes, they always bring them to me� about their tablets. Another person told us about discomfort they experienced from their arthritis. They reported the staff �always� gave them their painkillers when they asked for them.

We spoke with three members of staff who administered medication to people. They all told us they had been trained and received regular supervision in administering medicines. We watched a member of staff administering medicines. We saw they did this in a safe way. We observed a person asked for their inhaler. The member of staff promptly fetched it for them and appropriately supported the person while they used it

We saw medicines were securely stored. The home had a full audit trail of medicines received into the home, administered to people and sent for disposal. People had clear care plans about how they were to be supported in taking their medication.
