During a routine inspection

During our visit to the service on 11 April 2013 we spoke with two people who used the service, a relative of a person who used the service, a visitor to the home and three staff members.

We found staff promoted people�s privacy and dignity. Care plans reflected people�s wishes and preferences. People said they were provided with choices. One person said, �We are able to do anything we wish to do.� Another person said, �Staff always maintain my privacy."

People were complimentary about the care provided. A visitor told us, �Sharnbrook Care Home is a good home. Staff understand the needs of residents. You never hear the bell ringing for long in here.�

Medicines were managed safely. We found practices and records to be in good order.

We found there were sufficient staff on duty to meet people�s needs. Staff had access to a training programme to maintain their skills and knowledge.

We found the provider had systems in place to regularly monitor the quality of service that people received. There was no written action plan in place from the relatives and service user survey that was carried out recently. Environmental audits did not always provide timescales when remedial work had been completed.
