Inspection carried out on 27 February 2014

During an inspection to make sure that the improvements required had been made

At our previous visit in November 2013 we found that the service was not protecting people who lived in the home against the risks associated with medicines. Following that visit we issued the provider with a Warning Notice in respect of the non-compliance with regulation 13. We carried out this visit to check whether appropriate arrangements were now in place for the safe management of medicines. We found significant improvements had been made and overall we found medicines were now being safely and appropriately managed.

We checked the medicines records and stocks of nine people who used the service. We spoke with three people living in the home and whilst nobody was able to discuss their medicines in detail with us; no-one expressed any concerns about how their medicines were handled.
