Inspection carried out on 26 September and 2 October 2013

During a routine inspection

People were informed about procedures as part of the consent process. Each person we spoke with said they had been asked to sign consent prior to the procedure taking place.

A member of staff explained that people had an initial consultation where the treatments were described and the pre and post treatment care discussed. People were asked for their medical history.

We were told the cleaning was carried out by the laser technician and the receptionist. Whilst we were given a copy of the clinics cleaning rota it did not state how and when each area should be cleaned. We saw the clinic only had one mop, therefore this was used throughout the service, toilet, treatment rooms, reception and kitchen.

We looked at the fire safety advice policy which stated there should be a weekly test of the system to ensure that it would function in the event of a fire. We asked for evidence of this and, we were told the information was available on the computer, however this could not be provided on the day of our inspection. Staff we spoke with told us they were unaware of any fire alarm testing.

We were told staff had regular supervision meetings and an annual appraisal. However on the day of our inspection the service were unable to provide us with copies of appraisals or supervision meetings.

The provider did not have appropriate systems in place for gathering, recording and evaluating accurate information about the safety of the service provided.
