Inspection carried out on 26, 27 May 2011

During a routine inspection

Some of the people who use this service were highly dependant and had difficulty responding to verbal communication. During our visit we were able to hold a conversation with three people. Most of the information about people's experiences of Springfields Nursing Home was gathered through our observations.

We saw that people were supported to make decisions about their care and their care and treatment options were discussed with them.

We saw staff were respectful when speaking to people, taking time to explain what they were going to do.

People told us that the staff supported them to manage their health care needs and said they saw the GP regularly and received visits form specialist nurses and therapists when needed.

We saw that people had their nutritional needs assessed and monitored. Most people living at the home told us that the food was good and there were choices offered.

We saw that people benefited from a safe and pleasant environment. One person told us that they liked living at the home and enjoyed the view to the surrounding gardens.

What we found about the standards we reviewed and how well Springfields Nursing Home was meeting them
