Inspection carried out on 7 January 2013

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

The inspection carried out on 7 January 2013 was to check whether the provider was compliant with the three areas in which required improvements were identified during our last inspection in August 2012. During the inspection we also looked at other areas for which information that raised concerns had been received. Improvements had been made in the three areas in which required improvements had previously been identified. We were satisfied that people were cared for, or supported by, suitably qualified, skilled and experienced staff. The provider had an effective system in place to identify, assess and manage risks to the health, safety and welfare of people using the service and others and records were kept securely and could be located promptly when needed. The registered manager had recently left and an acting manager was in post.

We spoke with three people during our inspection. They told us that they were able to make decisions such as what time they got up in the morning, what they had to eat and how they spent their time. One person told us that they were asked what they wanted to wear each day. One person said, "They're very good. It's lovely." A second person said it was, "Fine."

During our inspection we found that the care plans for the two people most recently admitted to the home were incomplete. An initial assessment had been completed prior to their admission but the detailed information and risk assessments for each condition had not been completed.
