During an inspection looking at part of the service

We visited this service in June 2011 and one compliance action and one improvement action were issued. This meant the home needed to improve outcomes for people with regards to medication and develop the plans of care. We carried out this visit to ensure the service had complied with the actions required for the management of medication and review any changes to care planning.

We spoke to three staff members, one visitor and two people who live at Branston Court Nursing Home. We were told care plans had been improved and were now more person centred, staff told us that this supported them with the delivery of care and the information helped them to know more about the person and their life.

Some people who used the service were not able to express their views to us, and we observed interaction between people and staff and how people chose to spend their time. We saw staff supporting people to transfer using a hoist and staff were courteous and talked to people. People were also supported to have a drink and given a choice.

A relative told us they were happy with the care given and staff were available to provide care. They told us staff kept them informed about what was happening in the home and would contact them if anything happened.

People were well presented and able to wear their own clothes and dress in a style of their choosing.
