Overview

Inspection carried out on 5 December 2013

During a routine inspection

When we inspected Oakley Lodge Nursing Home on 5 December 2013, we found a relaxed and caring environment, where people were supported by staff who were trained, knowledgeable and responsive to their needs. We used different methods, including observation to help us understand the experiences of people who used the service. This is because some of the people had complex needs which meant they were not able to communicate verbally.

We looked at the care records for four of the six people who used the service. We found people's needs had been assessed, and appropriate support plans and risk assessments were in place. Theywere reviewed regularly to reflect people's changing needs. Although most people were unable to give informed consent, we found they were supported in a way that promoted their rights.

People's nutritional needs were met and their food preferences respected. Appropriate systems were in place to support a person who required percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) feeding.
