Overview

Inspection carried out on 28 October 2013

During a routine inspection

One person told us, "The staff are good and I am well looked after." Another person told us, �I am very happy here, the staff can�t do enough for me.�

We found that before people received any care or treatment they were asked for their consent and the provider acted in accordance with their wishes.

We spoke to staff and found that they were very knowledgeable about people�s likes and dislikes and how they wished to be supported. We were able to see how people�s skills and independence were promoted.

Where people were highlighted as being at risk, for example, with pressure sores care plans had been developed. We found that care records contained up to date care plans and risk assessments.

We found that the care records contained evidence to confirm that people had been involved with health professionals. People's health, safety and welfare were protected when more than one provider was involved in their care and treatment.

We saw that the service had appropriate equipment. We saw that regular checks and servicing of equipment was undertaken to ensure that it was safe.

We found that people were protected from the risks of unsafe or inappropriate care and treatment because records were accurate and up to date.
