During a routine inspection

During the inspection we followed up on non-compliance with care and welfare of people who use the services which was identified at an inspection November 2012. We found that the required improvements in providing care that was safer to people had not been made. We found that although the care had improved there were still some shortfalls which meant the people were not always as safe as they could be. We found that the service had an effective management system in place for the administration of medication, with people receiving their medicines safely.

We viewed the staffing levels at the service and observed the staffing levels of both Nurses and support staff during our inspection. We found there to a sufficient number of staff available on duty to meet the needs of people who used the service.

The service had not been submitting statutory notifications to the Care Quality Commission as required by the Health and Social Act of 2008. This meant we were unable to monitor how the service was managing significant events.

We found that the service had not regularly assessed and monitored the quality of the service in order to identify concerns and improve. We found this effected areas such as staffing and care and welfare.

Daily record keeping of people�s care were not maintained to a standard that detailed the level of care that had been provided for each person. However we found that the maintenance records for the service were fit for purpose.
