Inspection carried out on 4 March 2014

During an inspection to make sure that the improvements required had been made

We last inspected Rowan Lodge in November 2013. We found the provider was not meeting two of the essential standards of quality and safety. On the 4 March 2014 we undertook a further inspection of Rowan Lodge. We reviewed seven care plans and spoke with five members of staff.

We found people were asked for their consent before care and treatment was provided. Consent forms were completed and signed in all of the care plans we reviewed. The provider had ensured that mental capacity assessments were completed for people living in the home. However, we noted that the assessments were not always related to specific decisions. We also found that best interest decisions and meetings were not always recorded appropriately.

We reviewed the care plans and found these were accurate and fit for purpose. We noted that support plans were complete and people�s personal history, like and dislikes were recorded. End of life wishes and preferences and �Do not attempt resuscitation� forms had also been added to people�s care plans following our last inspection.
