Overview

Inspection carried out on 13 January 2014

During a routine inspection

When we visited the home in October 2013 we found there were not appropriate arrangements were not in place in relation to the recording of medicine. We looked at the medication administration records (MAR) for two people who lived at the home and saw there were gaps on both of the records. This meant it was not clear if people had received the medication they were prescribed.

We said that improvements were needed. We returned on this visit to check whether improvements had been made.

We spoke with the manager who told us that all staff had an observation of their competencies carried out regarding administering medication. In addition to this they had all re-read and signed the homes policy on medication. We saw that regular checks were now being carried out to ensure that any gaps on MAR records or stock levels were picked up immediately.
