Inspection carried out on 31 January 2013

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

This was a targeted inspection to follow-up on specific concerns that we raised about care planning and staff support when we last inspected the home on 16 August 2012.

We found that the management arrangements for the home had changed since our previous visit. A new registered manager was in post and a deputy manager had also been appointed. People who used the service and staff spoke highly of these two individuals and said that these changes had significantly improved the running of the home.

The manager said that all care plans had now been reviewed and updated. We looked at the care records for two people and found that guidelines and risk assessments had been recently updated. This meant that staff now had access to the right information to enable them to support people effectively.

We saw evidence that the home now had systems in place to ensure staff received regular training and supervision. We spoke with three members of staff who all confirmed that they now had the right support to enable them to do their jobs. This meant that people were supported by a competent team of staff.
