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

People received care and support from trained staff who understood how to protect them from harm and abuse. Staff understood how to report accidents and incidents, and the registered manager ensured these were reviewed and actioned appropriately.

People’s risks had been assessed and their care records provided staff with the information required to manage the risks identified.

Staff had received training in infection, prevention and control (IPC), the service had an IPC in place. Staff spoke with knowledge and confidence about how they managed risks in relation to COVID-19. We observed staff to be wearing the correct PPE throughout our inspection.

The registered manager had a quality assurance system in place to ensure all aspects of the service were audited and improvements were made where required.

The service provided a person-centred culture, people were involved in the planning of their care and had opportunities to suggest improvements to the service. People told us the improvements they had suggested had been actioned.

People, relatives and staff spoke positively about the registered manager and staff felt supported in their roles.

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.

Why we inspected

We received concerns in relation to infection control. As a result, we undertook a focused inspection to review the key questions of safe and well-led only.

We looked at infection prevention and control measures under the safe key question. We look at this in all care home inspections even if no concerns or risks have been identified. This is to provide assurance that the service can respond to COVID-19 and other infection outbreaks effectively.

We found no evidence during this inspection that people were at risk of harm from this concern. Please see the safe and well-led sections of this full report.

We reviewed the information we held about the service. No areas of concern were identified in the other key questions. We therefore did not inspect them. Ratings from previous comprehensive inspections for those key questions were used in calculating the overall rating at this inspection.

Follow up

We will continue to monitor information we receive about the service until we return to visit as per our re-inspection programme. If we receive any concerning information we may inspect sooner.
