Inspection carried out on 9 May 2013

During a routine inspection

We looked at three people�s care records which included their care plans, risk assessments and health plans. These were clear, person-centred, detailed and provided up to date information on how their diverse needs should be met.

People�s rooms were personalised and they were surrounded by their own possessions. People were issued with keys to their rooms if they wished to lock them.

We looked at the menus and saw they offered a wide range of hot and cold meals. We were told discussions took place between staff and people who lived at the home to promote awareness of nutrition and hydration.

We saw one person had been indentified as being at risk of poor calorie intake. Their nutritional plan had been personalised for them by their care workers in order to increase their daily calorie intake. Suggestions included, �XX to have full fat milk� and �XX is to add butter and grated cheese to vegetables, pasta, rice or soups.�

We looked around the home and observed a good overall standard of cleanliness. We saw people�s rooms were clean and communal areas were clean and tidy. The home was free from mal odour.

We reviewed the staff rotas. We saw one care worker, known as a house parent, and the registered manager were on duty throughout the day. The member of staff we spoke with told us there was a handover period with the night staff both in the morning and evening so that medication could be administered by two house parents.
