Inspection Summary


Overall summary & rating

Good

Updated 9 June 2018

The Crescent Care Home with Nursing is a ‘care home’. People in care homes receive accommodation and nursing or personal care as a single package under one contractual agreement. CQC regulates both the premises and the care provided, and both were looked at during this inspection.

The Crescent Care Home with Nursing is registered to provide nursing and personal care with accommodation for up to 40 people,although the home only usually accommodates up to 33 people as seven rooms are for double occupancy. At the time of our inspection it accommodated 31 older people in one adapted building in a residential area of Bournemouth.

At our last inspection we rated the service Good. At this inspection we found the evidence continued to support the rating of Good and there was no evidence or information from our inspection and ongoing monitoring that demonstrated serious risks or concerns. This inspection report is written in a shorter format because our overall rating of the service has not changed since our last inspection.

.

At this inspection we found the service remained Good.

People were supported by staff who understood the risks they faced and how to support them to reduce these. Staff understood how to identify and report abuse. Staff also supported people to take medicines safely.

People liked the food and there were systems in place to ensure they ate and drank safely.

People were supported by skilled and caring staff, the majority of whom at worked in the home for a long time, to ensure they lived their life the way they chose. Communication styles and methods were considered and staff supported people to understand the choices available to them.

Staff supported people in the least restrictive way possible. The systems in the service supported this practice and continued to be developed as people’s needs changed.

People had access to activities and tasks. These were not always recorded. We have made a recommendation about this.

People and relatives told us they could raise any concerns and these were addressed appropriately. They told us that the registered manager and the whole staff team were approachable.

Quality assurance systems involved people and were being developed to support the provision of a safe and good quality service.
