Inspection carried out on 10 September 2013

During a routine inspection

Staff sought people’s permission before providing care or treatment. One person’s relative told us, “They ask them what they want and seek their permission.”

People’s needs were assessed and care was planned and delivered to meet people’s needs. We found that people’s care records contained assessment of people’s needs and a plan as to how these needs were to be met. Staff were aware how to meet people’s needs.

The home was clean and smelt fresh and staff were aware of how to protect people from the risks of infection. One person told us, They clean my room pretty regularly.”

There were sufficient numbers of staff to meet people’s needs. One person told us, “The staff are pretty good.” We spoke with staff who considered there were enough staff to perform their duties effectively.

The provider assessed the quality of the service provider and made changes as necessary.
