Overview

Inspection carried out on 5 September 2014

During an inspection looking at part of the service

This was an announced inspection. This was because we needed to make arrangements so that the provider was available and we could gain access to the home. Following our previous inspection on 1 November 2013 we imposed a condition upon the provider�s registration to restrict admissions to the home due to the concerns about the safety and suitability of the premises. This meant that there were no people living at the home at the time of this inspection.

The fire officer, contracts officer and health and safety officer from the local authority were present at the time of this inspection.

We talked with the provider, the home manager and the quality assurance and safety support manager about the improvements that had been made to the premises and facilities. We also looked at some quality checks and service histories that had been completed for the premises and equipment.

We considered all of the evidence that we had gathered under the outcome that we inspected around the suitability and the safety of the premises to answer one of the five questions we always ask;

Is the service safe?

We saw that the provider had carried out significant refurbishment and redecoration work at the home so that the premises and facilities were suitable and safe for people who come to live at the home. To ensure future repairs and improvements are completed we saw the introduction of monitoring and quality checks. We saw that the provider had introduced a responsive and planned approach to make sure that the premises and facilities were consistently developed, reviewed and improved as required to meet the needs and safety of people who come to live at the home.
