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

People lived in a safe environment. Staff worked to reduce the risks of harm to people in their care. People were supported by enough numbers of staff who knew their needs well. Their medicines were managed safely, and staff followed government guidance to reduce the risks of the spread of infection during the COVID-19 pandemic. When incidents occurred, staff used their learning from the events to reduce the risk of reoccurrence for the people in their care.

The quality monitoring processes in place had been reviewed since our last inspection and we saw there were improvements in this area. However, more time is needed to ensure the systems in place are sustained and embedded into practice to ensure continued good standards of care for people.

Why we inspected

We looked at infection prevention and control measures under the Safe key question. We look at this in all care home inspections even if no concerns or risks have been identified. This is to provide assurance that the service can respond to coronavirus and other infection outbreaks effectively.

We undertook this focused inspection to follow up on concerns we had received, to check they had followed their action plan and to confirm they now met legal requirements. This report only covers our findings in relation to the Key Questions safe and well-led which contain those requirements. The ratings from the previous comprehensive inspection for those key questions not looked at on this occasion were used in calculating the overall rating at this inspection. The overall rating for the service is Good. This is based on the findings at this inspection.
