About the service

Bosworth Court Care Home is registered to provide accommodation and nursing care for up to 42 older people over two floors, some of whom are living with dementia. The service was purpose built to meet people's needs. At the time of the inspection there were 37 people using the service.

People’s experience of using this service and what we found

People living at the service told us they were happy and felt safe in “Their home”. Relatives were very positive about the care and experiences people were getting, and felt well informed, even during the periods of lockdown. End of life care was particularly praised by one relative for the way in which the home managed to combine care with compassionate, safe visiting.

People were supported to have maximum choice and control of their lives and staff supported them in the least restrictive way possible and in their best interests; the policies and systems in the service supported this practice and were seen to be very comprehensive for people with regard to COVID19 testing.

We recommend the provider implements a process to review forms including ReSPECT forms to ensure that information is accurate, current and reflects people’s wishes. The process should include, where appropriate, escalation and discussion with partners such as the General Practice where such forms are in place.

Rating at last inspection

The last rating for this service was requires improvement (published 29 October 2019).

Why we inspected

We looked at infection prevention and control measures under the Safe key question. We look at this in all care home inspections even if no concerns or risks have been identified. This is to provide assurance that the service can respond to coronavirus and other infection outbreaks effectively.

The inspection was prompted due to concerns received about a concern over a potential disparity in records held by the home and the local general practitioners for forms relating to end of life care and treatment. These were the “Do not Attempt Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation” (DNACPR) and the “Recommended Summary Plan for Emergency Care and Treatment” (ReSPECT) forms. This could have impacted negatively on people’s care if found to be correct. A decision was made for us to inspect and examine for that potential risk. As a result, we undertook a focused inspection to review the key questions of safe, effective and well-led only.

We found no evidence during this inspection that people were still at risk of harm from this concern. Please see the safe section of this report.

We reviewed the information we held about the service. No areas of concern were identified in the other key questions. We therefore did not inspect them.

The overall rating for the service has changed from requires improvement to good. This is based on the findings at this inspection together with the ratings from the previous comprehensive inspection for those key questions not inspected this time.
