Overview

Inspection carried out on 2 January 2014

During an inspection looking at part of the service

We carried out this inspection to check whether improvements had been made since our last inspection of the service in August 2013. At that inspection we found that, although risk assessments were carried out in respect of people�s needs, plans to manage the risks identified and maintain people�s safety were not always in place. In addition, arrangements for the accurate recording and storage of medicines were not appropriate. We asked the provider to take action to address these concerns.

At our inspection of the service on 2 January 2014 we found that significant improvements had been made. People who used the service had appropriate risk assessments and support plans in place which enabled their needs to be met. Safety plans made clear the actions for staff to take in order to manage the individual risks identified.

People�s capability to manage their own medicines was assessed and everyone had a plan in place to ensure they received the support they needed. Staff carried out checks to make sure people�s medicines were stored safely and accurate records of people�s medicines were kept by the service.
