What the care home does well
Service users health and care needs are well met and medication at this home is appropriately managed, promoting good health. One service user selfmedicates and it is favourable to note the comment of the visiting pharmacist that, "I feel confident that the home is run well. I have no concerns regarding medication". Staff are appropriately trained to provide the support that service users need and regular monitoring and recording of service users likes, dislikes and wishes ensures appropriate support to individual service users. Good risk assessments are in place. A variety of ways have been designed to take into account each risk identified and then these are used to support individual service users in their developmental needs, with the emphasis of bringing about outcomes to indicate whether improvements are made in respect to service users abilities. The monthly visits conducted to monitor the service are clearly recorded and they indicate where improvements are required with action plans for the staff team to address.
