How this check was done

Our judgement

People who use the service, staff and visitors are now protected against the risk of unsafe or unsuitable premises.

User experience

We did not talk to people on this occasion.

Other evidence

Following our inspection carried out in May 2012 we asked the provider to make the bedrooms safe by ensuring fire door closures were added that would enable people to have their doors open if they so wished.

The provider acted swiftly and within the week of the inspection had purchased and fitted doors closures for those doors without a closure and also serviced the existing closures to ensure that when the fire alarm was triggered the doors would fully close. Maintenance staff were seconded from other homes to assist with the fitting to ensure the home was safer from the risk created by fire

The manager and provider kept us and the local fire officer fully up to date with each stage of the process.
