Inspection carried out on 13 May 2013

During a routine inspection

We inspected four outcome areas during our visit. We inspected: care and welfare, safeguarding people who uses services from abuse, management of medicines, and staffing. We found three outcome areas were compliant except for- management of medicines. This was because the provider had not ensured people rights and choices were taken account of when administrating medicines.

We looked at the care plans and records of two people who lived at Orchard Court. We were unable to speak with many of the people who used services due to their disabilities and health conditions. We did speak with one service user who told us she was happy at the home. We spent time observing people at the home and their interactions with staff. The service has a keypad entry systems in and around the premises to keep people safe. One person with capacity told us they had been given the keypad number and were able to move freely around the home. We saw people's medicines were held in their bedrooms in a locked metal cupboard and could only be opened by staff administrating medicines. This meant medicines were kept safely. We saw from our observations and staff training records there were sufficient numbers of staff with the right skills knowledge and experience, to look after people who lived at Orchard Court safely.
