Rating at last inspection

The last rating for this service was Good. (report published December 2019).

Why we inspected

This targeted inspection was prompted to seek assurances about the safety and care of people after the provider had responded to safeguarding concerns in the home. An investigation was ongoing and as a result, this inspection did not examine the circumstances of the incident.

We looked at infection prevention and control measures under the Safe key question. We look at this in all care home inspections even if no concerns or risks have been identified. This is to provide assurance that the service can respond to coronavirus and other infection outbreaks effectively.

CQC have introduced targeted inspections to follow up on specific concerns. They do not look at an entire key question, only the part of the key question we are specifically concerned about. Targeted inspections do not change the rating from the previous inspection. This is because they do not assess all areas of a key question.

We found no evidence during this inspection that people were at continued risk of harm from these concerns. CQC will review of the findings of this investigation separately.

Please see the Safe and Caring sections of this report.

Follow up: We will return to visit as per our re-inspection programme. We will continue to monitor information we receive about the service until we return to visit as per our re-inspection programme. If we receive any concerning information we may inspect sooner.
