Inspection carried out on 22 April 2014

During an inspection in response to concerns

The inspection was carried out by a pharmacist inspector. We set out to answer three key questions; Is the service safe? Is the service effective? Is the service well led?

Below is a summary of what we found. The summary is based on our observations during the inspection, discussions with staff and people who use the service, looking at supplies of medicines and looking at records.

If you want to see the evidence supporting our summary please read the full report.

Is the service safe?

We found that the service was not safe because people were not protected against the risks associated with use and management of medicines.

People did not receive their medicines at the times they needed them and in a safe way. Medicines were not administered and recorded appropriately, and were not kept safely.

Is the service effective?

We found that care plans for managing medicines were poor and staff did not have clear guidance available to them to make sure that people received appropriate care.

Is the service well led?

We saw that audits, or checks of medicines, were done to assess the way medicines were managed. However, we had concerns about the way medicines were handled and these were not identified or managed appropriately through the audits.
