Staff have a good professional relationship with residents. There is a good support network of health professionals throughout the CMG organisation. There are suitable procedures in place for the safe handling of residents` monies. Appropriate activities are provided at the home.

Records are now being kept of all visitors to the home. The provision of meals has improved and the home now undertakes in house cooking.
What the care home could do better:
Care plans, risk assessments and monitoring forms need to provide consistent and accurate information to ensure staff have clear guidance. Staff must ensure that monitoring charts in use are accurately completed to reflect actual current practices. The recruitment procedures and induction procedures need to be more robust. The Protection of Vulnerable Adults (POVA) proceduresneed to provide clearer guidance for staff. The complaints procedure needs to contain the contact details of the CSCI.
