What the care home does well

What the care home could do better:
This is a random inspection and therefore not all of the key standards were assessed. Staff should ensure that they follow guidance regarding changing people`s position to minimise the risk of sore skin. Nurses should record the reasons for administering `as required` medications so that people receive medication for the reasons prescribed. People must be supported to enjoy the activities that they enjoy without this affecting other people who live in the home. The water drainage in the shower room should be reviewed to ensure that risks to people are minimised. Staff should have the knowledge and skills to manage peoples difficult behaviour. Systems should be in place to ensure that agency staff are given all the information they need to know about the home and the people who live there.
