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

People felt safe at Clumber House Nursing Home. People and relatives told us staff were kind and attentive. Medicines were managed safely. Risk assessments were carried out and incidents and accidents were investigated.

The provider had developed a robust policy to strengthen the infection prevention and control (IPC) practices in the home. Staff complied with the requirements to wear protective personal equipment (PPE) and regularly washed their hands. The home was clean and tidy.

Care plans had been updated and transferred onto the provider's care planning paperwork, so they reflected people's current needs. 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.

Staff knew about the safeguarding and whistleblowing procedures and were confident about speaking up. An appropriate number of staff were on duty to meet people's individual needs and new staff were recruited safely. Staff were well supported and received the training they needed.

The general manager had developed a range of effective audits and systems to monitor the quality of care at Clumber House Nursing Home.
