About the service: Eversleigh Nursing Home is a care home with nursing that provides accommodation and personal care for up to 42 older people. At the time of our visit, 33 people lived at the home.

People's experience of using this service:

People felt safe and were protected from avoidable harm. Staff were trained in safeguarding and knew what to do and who to tell if they had concerns about people’s well-being.

Risk management plans informed staff how to manage risks associated with people's care. However, systems to check the environment and equipment were safe for people were not always effective. Immediate action was taken to address this.

There were enough clinical and care staff with the appropriate skills, knowledge and experience to meet people’s needs and provide effective care. Staff had defined responsibilities and received the training and guidance they needed to complete their role well.

The service had built good relationships with other healthcare professionals to ensure people received safe consistent care.

People's nutrition and hydration needs were met, and they received their medicines as prescribed.

Staff followed people’s personalised care plans to ensure people had the care and support they needed.

Staff were committed to ensuring people’s needs were met in a welcoming and friendly environment and motivated to have a positive impact on people’s lives.

Staff understood the principles of the Mental Capacity Act 2005, so people could continue to have maximum choice and control of their lives.

People were offered opportunities to engage in activities and events they were interested in.

The registered manager understood their regulatory responsibilities and shared information with stakeholders in a timely way. They had introduced several initiatives at the home to improve outcomes for people and to raise quality standards.
