People’s experience of using this service and what we found

We were assured the provider had robust infection control procedures in place, which staff were following, to keep people safe from the risks of COVID-19. There was enough personal protective equipment and staff were wearing this appropriately.

There was good oversight of quality and safety in the service by the staff team, manager and quality leads supporting the service. Staff fed back positively about the management team. The service worked with people to gain their views about how the service should run and how their care should be provided. People’s relatives had confidence in the management and felt involved.

Rating at last inspection

The last rating for this service was good (published 13 December 2017).

Why we inspected

We undertook this targeted inspection to follow up on specific risks we had identified related to the service. A decision was made for us to inspect and examine those risks. The risks included: multiple changes in registered manager at the service and concerns over the culture within the home.

CQC have introduced targeted inspections to follow up on Warning Notices or to check specific concerns. They do not look at an entire key question, only the part of the key question we are specifically concerned about. Targeted inspections do not change the rating from the previous inspection. This is because they do not assess all areas of a key question.

We looked at infection prevention and control measures under the Safe key question. We look at this in all care home inspections even if no concerns or risks have been identified. This is to provide assurance that the service can respond to coronavirus and other infection outbreaks effectively.

The overall rating for the service has not changed following this targeted inspection and remains good.

Follow up

We will continue to monitor information we receive about the service until we return to visit as per our re-inspection programme. If we receive any concerning information we may inspect sooner.
