Inspection carried out on 29 January 2014

During a routine inspection

Five people were living at Brimley at the time of our inspection. During this inspection we observed engagement and interaction between support staff and people who live at the home. We saw that support staff were kind and considerate in their approach to each person and were sensitive to the needs of people.

We found that people's consent had been obtained for care and treatment provided to them by the service. Records we looked at did not show that people had had regular opportunities to be involved in and discuss how they wished to have their care provided or that they had been given information about treatment which they had received.

People's health and social care needs had been assessed and care had been delivered to meet their needs. People had access to community and specialist health services. We saw some risk assessments in place, but there were none relating to nutrition or pressure areas.

People had been protected against the risks associated with medicines because the provider had appropriate arrangements in place to manage medicines.

People were cared for by suitably qualified, skilled and experienced staff.

People who live at the home were aware of how to make it known to support staff if they were unhappy.
