Overview

Inspection carried out on 14 May 2013

During a routine inspection

We carried out this inspection to follow up concerns found when we last visited the home in March 2013. During our visit, we found that improvements had been implemented and systems were being developed so that the manager was able to monitor the service provided.

People living in the area of the home for people with dementia were unable to speak with us directly. However, we carried out a structured observation and saw examples of people reacting positively to staff interactions and people enjoying time in the lounge listening to music.

We saw that improvements had been made in relation to the quality and quantity of food provided for people. People were able to make choices about the food they wanted and were able to have more if they wished. Staff told us that there were drinks rounds for people between main meals, with cakes and biscuits on offer.

A pharmacist inspector formed part of our inspection in order to look at the recording and administration of medicines. We found shortcomings in the obtaining, recording and safe administration of some medicines.
