During an inspection looking at part of the service

At the previous inspection in September 2013 we found the provider to be non-compliant with four regulations of the HSCA 2008. These were cleanliness and infection control (Regulation 12); Safety and suitability of premises (Regulation 15,1, c); Supporting workers (regulation 23 1a,1b) and Assessing and monitoring the quality of service provision (Regulation 10 1a,1b,2a,2b(i)).

At this inspection we observed that people were cared for in a clean, hygienic environment. We confirmed there were systems in place to reduce the risk and spread of infection.

We found the premises were monitored regularly and appropriate checks had been undertaken to ensure patients and staff were protected from the risks of unsafe or unsuitable premises.

We saw evidence that staff received annual appraisals. They attended staff meetings and were supported to attend further and mandatory training where necessary. This meant patients were cared for by suitably qualified staff.

There were quality monitoring systems in place; which included patients giving feedback about their care and treatment. We saw evidence that feedback was acted upon appropriately.
