Inspection carried out on 26 February 2013

During a routine inspection

Care was provided in an environment that was clean and organised. People who used the service were able to have their own personal belongings to make individual rooms more personalised.

We found care files contained detailed assessments of care needs and assessments of risks for each individual. There was good background information about each person, including hobbies and interests, and any cultural needs.

We saw that when care plans were implemented and reviewed, individuals were fully involved, as were relatives or advocates. When people were unable to make decisions for themselves, best interest meetings had taken place and were well documented.

Following the last inspection we found that restraint of a person who required treatment on a regular basis was not undertaken within the MHA code of practice (1983). We assessed this standard again to review what action had been taken.

When we reviewed the care files and daily records we found action had been implemented to ensure that when any restraint was applied, this was recorded fully.

There were appropriate systems in place to monitor and manage the maintenance of the centre. Contracts were in place for waste collection and service and maintenance of equipment.
