Inspection Summary


Overall summary & rating

Good

Updated 17 October 2017

Eden View provides accommodation, nursing and personal care for up to 10 people, who have a learning disability or acquired brain injury. The home is built on two floors and has a number of both large and small sitting and dining areas where people can choose to sit. At the time of this inspection there were nine people living at the service.

At our last inspection the service was rated as good. At this inspection we found the service remained good.

At the time of our inspection, the two people who were registered as the managers of the service were no longer working in the service. We were still waiting to receive an application to cancel their registration. A registered manager is a person who has registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC) to manage the service. Like registered providers, they are 'registered persons'. Registered persons have legal responsibility for meeting the requirements in the Health and Social Care Act 2008 and associated Regulations about how the service is run. There was a newly appointed manager in post who was in the process of applying for registration.

People continued to be safe because potential risks to people were assessed and minimised and staff understood their responsibility to protect people from avoidable harm. There were enough staff on duty to meet people's needs and staff recruitment ensured that only staff suitable to work at this service were employed. Staff continued to receive an induction, training and support that ensured they could do their job well.

Medicines continued to be managed safely and people received their medicines as prescribed.

People were supported to have maximum choice and control of their lives and staff supported them in the least restrictive way possible; the policies and systems in the service supported this practice.

People's nutritional needs continued to be met and people were supported to have enough to eat and drink. A range of healthcare professionals visited the service to support people to maintain good health.

People were cared for by staff who treated them with warmth, kindness and compassion. Staff showed they genuinely cared about the people they were looking after. They respected people's privacy and dignity and encouraged people to be as independent as they could be. Visitors were welcomed and also had warm, friendly relationships with the staff.

Care plans were personalised and gave staff guidance on the care each person needed. People were encouraged to participate in activities and interests of their choice.

People and their relatives knew who to speak to if they were not happy with the service and were confident their complaints would be addressed.

People, staff and visitors to the service were encouraged to put forward their views about the service being provided. The quality of the care was monitored by a range of audits that were carried out regularly.
