People’s experience of using this service and what we found

There was no registered manager at Henry Cornish Care Centre. An interim manager from one of the provider’s homes had oversight of the day to day running of the service whilst waiting for a new manager to start. The manager was supported in their role by a head of care and an area manager. The service had a clear management and staffing structure in place which allowed continuity of care. Staff worked well as a team and ensured people received care that met their needs. The provider had quality assurance systems in place to monitor the quality and safety of the service.

People told us staff were caring. We saw people received good care from staff who knew them well. People had access to activities to prevent social isolation. However, these could be improved.

People living at Henry Cornish Care Centre told us they received safe care from skilled and knowledgeable staff. Staff understood their responsibilities to identify and report any concerns. The provider had safe recruitment and selection processes in place. The home used the same agency staff to ensure consistency of care. Staff recruitment was on-going.

Risks to people's safety and well-being were managed through a risk management process. There were sufficient staff deployed to meet people's needs. Medicines were managed safely and people received their medicines as prescribed.

People were supported to have maximum choice and control of their lives and staff supported them in the least restrictive way possible and in their best interests; the policies and systems in the service supported this practice. People were supported to maintain good health and to meet their nutritional needs.
