Inspection carried out on 21 January 2014

During a routine inspection

In this report the name of a registered manager appears who was not in post and not managing the regulatory activities at this location at the time of the inspection. Their name appears because they were still a Registered Manager on our register at this time.

Due to people who lived in the home having a variety of communication needs we were not able to speak directly with everyone. During the day we sat with people who used the service, observed their daily activities and observed interactions between people who lived at the home and staff. We spoke with the manager and three members of staff. We reviewed documentation, including three care plans.

We checked the care records for three people who lived at the home and saw that they had been updated consistently so that staff had current information about the people they supported. We saw positive interactions between people who lived at the home and staff.

There were systems in place to promote the safe administration of medication; this ensured that people received the right medication at the right time.

The home was clean and well maintained. Quality audits had been carried out to monitor that systems in the home were being followed consistently and that people received safe and appropriate care.

Staff had been employed following robust recruitment procedures; this ensured that only people considered suitable to work with vulnerable people had been employed. Staff had received appropriate training.
