During an inspection looking at part of the service

When we visited the home in September 2013 we found suitable arrangements were not in place for the purpose of obtaining consent from people. We found information kept in staff personnel files was not up to date, nor did it show that effective recruitment and selection processes had been followed. We saw there were not enough qualified, skilled and experienced staff working at the home to meet people�s needs. We also found people were not protected from the risks of unsafe or inappropriate care and treatment because accurate and appropriate records were not maintained. We asked the provider to make improvements.

We went back on this inspection to check whether improvements had been made.

On the day of our inspection 39 people were living at the home. We looked at the care records of five people and found they all contained documentation to show each person had given their consent to the care and treatment they received at the home.

We looked at four staff personnel records and saw they all contained evidence to show effective recruitment processes had been followed.

We looked at the rotas in place which showed the staffing levels for a two week period prior to our inspection. We saw staffing at night had been increased. This meant there were four members of staff to care for people at night.

We looked at nutritional charts for people living at the home and saw these were accurate and up to date.
