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

We visited the home to follow up minor concerns we had with people's care and welfare following our visit to the home in July 2012. At that time we felt that people experienced care, treatment and support that met their needs and protected their rights. However, the provider had introduced a new care recording system and it was not fully implemented. Record keeping needed to be improved to demonstrate that people received safe and appropriate care and treatment.

During our follow up visit we looked at the care records for six people and found them to be accurate and up to date. Assessments of needs were carried out to enable care planning. There were written comments in relation to people's care needs and monthly evaluations were completed. Where necessary care plans were complemented by charts for monitoring food and fluid intake, weight and vital signs.

We had previously felt that the lunchtime dining in the dementia unit was drawn out and not the best experience for people. During this visit we saw that alternative arrangements were in place and people were engaging with each other in a more relaxed environment.
