During an inspection to make sure that the improvements required had been made

We looked at the management of medicines to follow up on some issues found at a previous inspection. We checked the arrangements for handling, and giving medicines in the home. We talked with staff and watched some medicines being given to people. We checked storage arrangements, and medicines records.

When we inspect we gather evidence to answer the below questions.

Is the service safe?

Is the service effective?

Is the service caring?

Is the service responsive?

Is the service well led?

This inspection was to follow up some issues with the management of medicines, and so we only looked at whether the service is safe on this occasion. Below is a summary of the inspection and what we found.

Is the service safe?

We found that there were appropriate arrangements in place in relation to the obtaining, recording, handling, safe keeping and administration of medicines. We saw that improvements have been made recently to the way medicines were managed in the home. We found that a warning notice that we had issued has now been met.
