Inspection carried out on 5 March 2013

During an inspection in response to concerns

We spoke with three people and three people’s relatives. People’s privacy was respected and people were treated with consideration. One person told us, “They generally knock on the door before they enter. They have a polite approach.”

People’s care needs were assessed and care was planned and delivered to meet their needs. One person told us, “I get all the help I need, the staff meet my needs.”

The provider had a process in place to report allegations of abuse and staff were aware of this process. Staff had received appropriate training and were supported in their roles.

The provider had not protected people against the risks of infection as they had not conducted an adequate assessment of the risks of cross infection.

Records were accurate and contained appropriate information. There was a process in place for secure storage and destruction of records which were no longer needed.

In this report, the name of the registered manager appears who was not in post and not managing the regulated activity at this location at the time of the inspection. Their name appears because they were still a registered manager on our register at the time.
