Inspection Summary


Overall summary & rating

Good

Updated 21 March 2018

This inspection took place on 16 January 2018 and was announced.

Muston Road (the service) is a residential care home for four people with a learning disability or physical disability. It is a large detached property situated on a main road into Filey and is within walking distance of the town centre. There are three large bedrooms and a separate flat with its own facilities. A large private and secluded garden is situated to the rear of the property. At the time of our inspection there were three people who used the service.

People in care homes receive accommodation and personal care as a single package under one contractual agreement. The Care Quality Commission (CQC) regulates both the premises and the care provided, and both were looked at during this inspection. The service had been developed and designed in line with the values that underpin the ‘Registering the Right Support’ and other best practice guidance. These values include choice, promotion of independence and inclusion. People with learning disabilities using the service can live as ordinary a life as any citizen.

At our last inspection, we rated the service good. At this inspection, we found the evidence continued to support the rating of good and there was no evidence or information from our inspection and on-going monitoring that demonstrated serious risks or concerns. This inspection report is written in a shorter format because our overall rating of the service has not changed since our last inspection.

At this inspection we found the service remained Good.

The provider had a registered manager in post. A registered manager is a person who has registered with the CQC to manage the service. Like registered providers, they are ‘registered persons’. Registered persons have legal responsibility for meeting the requirements in the Health and Social Care Act 2008 and associated Regulations about how the service is run.

People were safe and well cared for. The registered manager followed robust recruitment checks, to employ suitable people. There were sufficient staff employed to assist people in a timely way. People’s medicines were managed safely.

Staff had completed relevant training or were booked on a refresher course where needed. We found that they received supervision, to fulfil their roles effectively.

People were supported to have maximum choice and control of their lives and staff supported them in the least restrictive way possible; the policies and systems in the service supported this practice.

People enjoyed good food. Their health needs were identified and staff worked with other professionals, to ensure these needs were met.

People’s independence was promoted. The service provided people with care that met their wishes and choices, whilst protecting their privacy and dignity.

Staff were knowledgeable about people’s individual care needs and care plans were person-centred and detailed. People participated in a wide range of activities within the service and in the community, and they also enjoyed the company of others in the service.

The service was well managed and organised. The registered manager assessed and monitored the quality of care provided to people. People, relatives and staff were asked for their views and their suggestions were used to continuously improve the service.

Events requiring notification had been reported to CQC. The service met all relevant fundamental standards we inspect against.
