During an inspection looking at part of the service

On this visit we looked at a sample of six care plans. All of which were people who had recently moved into Atherton Lodge. We found that all contained pre-admittance assessments and had care plans completed in relation to health, personal hygiene and social needs. Records showed that when a person had recently fallen their care plans were updated to reflect this with clear guidance in place of how staff were to manage that risk. This had addressed the concerns we raised with the provider during our last inspection where it was evident that one person had not received a pre-admittance assessment prior to them living at Atherton Lodge.

We did not speak with people who used the service during this visit as people we spoke with on our previous inspection were happy with the care they received and considered that they were well looked after. Relatives we spoke with at our last inspection said that their relation's health had improved since coming to live at Atherton Lodge.
