People’s experience of using this service

Improvements had been made in accordance with the provider’s action plan and the breach of regulation found at the last inspection had been met. Risk in relation to; the administration of medicines, management of the environment and completion of records had been reduced. Staff understood their responsibility to report abuse and neglect. Staff were recruited safely and deployed in sufficient numbers to provide safe, effective care. Lakeside View was bright, homely and clean.

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.

Quality and safety audits had improved since the last inspection and were effective in identifying issues and reducing risk. The registered manager and provider completed regular safety and quality audits. The manager and the staff that we spoke with demonstrated their commitment to providing high-quality, person-centred care. This commitment was reflected in records and in their interactions with people. People living at Lakeside View, relatives and staff were informed of any changes and encouraged to contribute to discussions.

The last rating for this service was requires improvement (published 11 June 2019) and there was a breach 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

We carried out an unannounced comprehensive inspection of this service on 8 May 2019. A breach of legal requirements was found. The provider completed an action plan after the last inspection to show what they would do and by when to improve safe care and treatment.

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 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.
