Overview

Inspection carried out on 2 January 2014

During a routine inspection

At the time of our inspection visit, this small care home had been operating for a few months and provided care and support for two people. We spoke with both people who used the service about their experience of living at Rhodsac. They told us they liked living there, and were happy with the care and support they received from staff. They told us their views were listened to and any concerns they had were taken seriously and acted on and they felt safe. We also spoke with two relatives who said they thought their relations were happy.

We found that people received good day to day care from staff who knew them well, however this was not supported by having individualised care plans and risk assessments in place. This meant there was a risk that people�s care may not have been effectively managed and individual risks minimised to ensure people�s safety and welfare.

Recruitment checks were sufficiently robust to guard against employing unsuitable staff. There was no registered manager in post at the time of our inspection. The service was being managed by the company director until a registered manager was recruited.
