Inspection carried out on 6 September 2016

During a routine inspection

The inspection took place on 31 September and 6 October 2016 and was announced. We gave the provider short notice before our visit that we would be visiting to ensure the registered manager was available. This is the first inspection of this service.

Saroia Staffing services is a domiciliary care service that provides care and support to people living in their own homes. The inspection was completed by one inspector. At the time of our inspection the service provided support to seven people with either personal care needs or nursing needs. The agency is also registered as a nursing agency.

There was a manager who was registered with us. A registered manager is a person who has registered with the Care Quality Commission to manage the service. Like registered providers, they are ‘registered persons’. Registered persons have legal responsibility for meeting the requirements in the Health and Social Care Act 2008 and associated Regulations about how the service is run.

People felt safe with the staff that supported them because staff knew how to protect people from harm. Procedures were in place that ensured the service was safe and that people’s rights were protected.

There were sufficient numbers of suitably recruited staff available to support people and keep them safe. Staff had received training that ensured they had the skills and knowledge to care for people.

People were protected because management plans were in place to manage risks based on people’s individual assessed care needs.

People were consulted about their care so their wishes, choices and preferences were known so they could receive care that met their individual needs.

Complaints were not always recorded and fully investigated to ensure people’s concerns were listened to and addressed satisfactory.

The provider had management systems in place to assess and monitor the quality of the service provided to people; however the providers own procedures had not been followed in all instances.
