What the care home does well
The home provides a safe, homely environment in which residents are supported to maintain their levels of physical and psychological ability. There is a stable and skilled staff team. Staffs spoken with were aware of the needs of the residents and qualified nurses and senior staffs ensure appropriate management of the personal, health and social care needs. The staff have links with external professional agencies in infection control, continence care and tissue viability, which ensures that up to date practice in the management of health related conditions, is provided. Care staffs receive training to NVQ level 2-3 ensuring that residents receive support from staff that are trained or on a programme of learning that leads to a qualification that matches their job role.
What has improved since the last inspection?
Hand written medication records are maintained as appropriate. Staff spoken with reported training is ongoing. Training records are well maintained.
What the care home could do better:
Records of food provided and cleaning undertaken and weekly fire tests need to be consistently maintained. It is recommended that a checklist for the recruitment and selection of staff is developed to `track ` information and documentation requested and received.
