Jansondean is a care home that provides accommodation and nursing care for up to 28 older people. At the time of the inspection 18 people were using the service.

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

People told us they felt safe. There were safeguarding policies and procedures in place and staff had a clear understanding of these procedures. Appropriate recruitment checks took place before staff started work and there were enough staff available to meet people’s care and support needs. Risks to people were assessed and staff were aware of the action to take to minimise risks where they had been identified. Medicines were managed safely. The service had procedures in place to reduce the risk of infections and COVID 19.

Assessments of people’s care and support needs were carried out before they started using the service. Staff received training and support relevant to people’s needs. People were supported to maintain a balanced diet. People had access to a range of healthcare services when needed. 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.

People had been consulted about their care and support needs. People had care plans that described their health care and support needs and included guidelines for staff on how to best support them. People knew how to make a complaint if they were unhappy with the service. There were procedures in place to make sure people had access to end of life care and support if it was required.

The provider took people’s views into account through satisfaction surveys and spot checks and feedback from these was used to improve the service. Staff said they received good support from the manager. The manager and staff worked with health and social care providers to drive improvement and to deliver an effective service.

Rating at last inspection and update

The last rating for this service was requires improvement (published 7 March 2020) and there were multiple breaches of regulation. The provider completed an action plan after the last inspection to show what they would do and by when to improve. At this inspection we found improvements had been made and the provider was no longer in breach of regulations.

Why we inspected

This was a planned inspection based on the previous rating.

We undertook this focused inspection to check they had followed their action plan and to confirm they now met legal requirements. This report only covers our findings in relation to the key questions safe, effective, responsive and well-led which contain those requirements.

The ratings from the previous comprehensive inspection for those key questions not looked at on this occasion were used in calculating the overall rating at this inspection. The overall rating for the service has changed from requires improvement to good. This is based on the findings at this inspection.

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.
