Inspection carried out on 4 October 2013

During a routine inspection

We last visited Summon Bonum in March 2013. We found that the home was meeting the essential standards that we looked at.

On the day of our visit in October 2013 there were nine people living at the home. All had some degree of learning disability.

We were told that everyone had the ability to consent to day to day care and treatment. We found that people’s consent had been obtained for care and treatment provided to them by the service.

We looked at three care plans and found that there were good risk assessments in place for mobility, personal care, nutrition and the environment. We found that care plans reflected the needs of the person as an individual because each plan had the needs of the person clearly set out. Care workers told about the types of activities each individual particularly liked. For example, shopping, going out for lunch or going to the betting shop.

The medication systems allowed for a full audit trail to be completed recording the receipt, administration or return and disposal of prescribed medication. We saw that medication quantities were audited each time a new batch was received.

Effective recruitment procedures were in place. For example, we saw evidence that Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) (criminal records) checks had been performed.

We found that the home had a robust system in place which ensured that records were secure, accurate and up to date.
