What has improved since the last inspection?
The home has had a period of stability, which has enabled them to make a number of improvements needed so that people living at the home receive a good service. This has included the development of care plans so that staff are clearly directed in how residents wish to be supported. Further training and development has been arranged for staff ensuring they have the knowledge and skills needs to carry out their roles. The home was clean, warm and tidy. Some further redecoration had been carried out with on going work identified. Once completed this will enhance the appearance of the home providing a better standard of accommodation for residents. One resident spoken with said that the acting manager was `a good manager who has worked wonders`. They added there have been `a lot of changes for the better`.
What the care home could do better:
To ensure that the residents are kept safe, staff must make sure that a detailed risk assessment is in place for any person needing bedrails. The provider must ensure that checks are carried out on a regular basis with regards to fire safety and water temperatures ensuring the safety of people at the home. Action identified on the recent gas safety certificate must also been addressed ensuring the system is safe and people are not at risk of harm. The provider is asked to expand on the information provided within the monthly visit reports so that this demonstrates they are monitoring all areas of the service provided as well as seeking feedback from both staff and people living at the home. Information gathered as part of the quality monitoring should be used to inform the homes annual development plan. A copy of this should be sent to relevant stakeholder and the commission. The Provider must ensure that the full certificate of registration is displayed within the home.Ainsworth Nursing HomeDS0000017312.V375087.R01.S.docVersion 5.2Page 8
