Overview

Inspection carried out on 4 July 2013

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

People we spoke with told us they were happy living at the home and were pleased with the newly refurbished lounge. One person told us �it�s more homely now�.

We found that there was an overall improvement in standards of hygiene at the home, but there were areas that needed further attention. The provider had put systems in place to monitor infection control and there was an action plan in place to ensure all areas of concern were addressed by 14 July 2013.

We found that there were effective systems put in place by the registered manager to ensure that people were protected from the risks associated with the use of unsafe medical equipment.

Although the provider had put additional systems in place to identify, assess and mange risks to the care and welfare of people using the service we found that the new systems were not fully effective. This was because staff were not always following the new processes.
