Inspection carried out on 3 December 2012

During an inspection looking at part of the service

At our last inspection in July 2012, we set compliance actions to address issues identified. These included the care and welfare of people living at the home, the management of staffing and monitoring of the care practices in the home.

During this inspection, we spoke with three people living at the home, the manager, the operational manager and five staff. Following our inspection we also spoke with four relatives.

We found that some improvements were being carried out that ensured people�s needs were being met with identified risks reduced.

We observed that staff spoke with people who lived at the home in a respectful way. People who lived at this home who we spoke with told us they were happy with the quality of care and support they received. One person said, �Food is okay� and �Staff are very good and caring.� This person also told us that there were activities if they wanted to join in these but liked to also spend time in their room which they said staff respected.

We found that the medicine administration, management and practices were not effective and therefore people were at risk from not receiving their medicines as prescribed.

In this report the name of two registered managers appear who were not in post and not managing the regulatory activities at this location at the time of the inspection. Their names appear because they were still Registered Managers on our register at the time.
