Inspection carried out on 14 January 2014

During an inspection looking at part of the service

We conducted this inspection to follow up concerns identified at our previous inspection which was carried out on 8 October 2013. Our previous inspection found that suitable recruitment arrangements were not in place.

As a result of the October 2013 inspection we required that the provider supply us with an improvement action plan, which we received. This plan told us what improvements would be made and when they would be completed by. This follow up inspection was carried out to establish whether improvements had been made.

We found that staff files had been updated to ensure that all required information was present. These records had also been re-organised and all staff files followed the same format. Recruitment and interviewing guidance/prompts were available. We also noted that a recruitment and selection checklist was being used to ensure all necessary steps were taken when employing staff.

We were satisfied that, due to the improvements made, people were protected from the risks associated with the employment of staff because appropriate recruitment arrangements were in place.
