Inspection carried out on 26 November 2013

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

We previously inspected Partridge Care Centre in May 2013 and again in September 2013. During those inspections we found that the provider did not have an effective system in place to monitor the quality of service people received or to identify, assess and manage risks to people's health safety and welfare. We also found that record keeping practices were not satisfactory and that records were not accurate or fit for purpose. We required improvements to be made.

When we inspected the home again on 26 November we found that the provider had implemented a new quality monitoring process that enabled the provider to identify where improvements were required and to take action. We also found that care plans were effectively audited and that this ensured risks were identified and managed.

We also found that people's records were diligently maintained. A new record keeping system had been implemented and this contributed to care and treatment being provided safely and effectively, particularly in relation to the management of pressure ulcers.
