People’s experience of using this service and what we found

Improvements were being made within the home. Carpets were being replaced, the home was being redecorated and vinyl floorings in en-suite bathrooms were sealed to ensure effective cleaning could take place. The sluice had been reorganised, repaired and redecorated to ensure equipment and products were safely stored. Information regarding cleaning products and correct dilution rates were now available and staff had received training to ensure they all knew how these were to be used effectively. Cleaning records were completed and the manager had oversight to ensure this was effective.

Why we inspected

We undertook this targeted inspection to check whether the Warning Notice we previously served in relation to Regulation 12 of the Health and Social Care Act 2008 (Regulated Activities) Regulations 2014 had been met. The overall rating for the service has not changed following this targeted inspection and remains Requires Improvement.

CQC have introduced targeted inspections to follow up on Warning Notices or to check specific concerns. They do not look at an entire key question, only the part of the key question we are specifically concerned about. Targeted inspections do not change the rating from the previous inspection. This is because they do not assess all areas of a key question.

Follow up

We will continue to monitor information we receive about the service until we return to visit as per our re-inspection programme. If we receive any concerning information we may inspect sooner.
