Inspection carried out on 16 September 2014

During an inspection looking at part of the service

When we visited Berkshire Health Limited in August 2013 we found there were inadequate systems in place to support staff in identifying, recording, and reporting safeguarding incidents. We also found that although nurses and consultants were vetted prior to employment, there were some gaps in nurses' recruitment records.

We carried out an inspection in September 2014 to check the provider had addressed the issues we previously identified. We saw the provider had taken appropriate action to meet the requirements of safeguarding vulnerable adults. We found the recruitment process had been reviewed and improvements had been made. However, all the required information in respect of staff employed in the service was not in place.
