Inspection carried out on 16 April 2013

During a routine inspection

During our inspection we spoke with six people who used the service. All the people we spoke with were very positive about the service. One person we spoke with said; “I can’t fault this place. As a care home it’s excellent”. Another person said; “You couldn’t fault them”. A third person said; “A lot of thought has gone into it. It’s very comfortable”. A fourth person we spoke with said; “I’m terribly impressed. It’s very good here”.

We found people were involved in the planning and the delivery of their care and their opinions were regularly sought. We saw people had signed their care plans in order to provide their consent to their care and staff asked people’s permission prior to delivering care. We saw the service had ensured risk assessments had been carried out for each person in order to ensure their care and welfare and that all staff had been trained in safeguarding. We found the service had appropriate systems in place to manage the storage, administration and disposal of medicines.
