Overview

Inspection carried out on 10 April 2013

During an inspection looking at part of the service

We visited the home on 10 April 2013 to check compliance with a warning notice that had been served on the provider in February 2013.

We found that the warning notice had been complied with as the provider had ensured that the records in relation to the people living in the home had been updated and were an accurate record of their needs and the care and treatment that they were receiving.

We also found that the provider had taken proper steps to ensure that each person had an assessment of their needs and a care plan in place so that the staff had the information they required to meet people's needs in a safe manner. We talked with people living in the home and they were all complimentary about the care they had received, one person told us "I like living here, the home couldn't be improved". One relative of a person living in the home told us "Since the new manager has been here it is much better. My (relative) is always treated with absolute dignity". The records showed that when people's needs had changed the assessments and care plans had been updated to ensure that people still received the care that they required.

The effective recruitment policy and procedure in place was followed to ensure that the right people had been employed.
