What the care home does well
The home looks to support and encourage people to lead independent lifestyles. They have been working closely with other agencies to maintain an appropriate service. There was a good level of satisfaction with the service.
What has improved since the last inspection?
The decoration has improved as required and a new carpet has been fitted. The correct codes are now being used on medical record sheets. There was now more information in care plans and daily recordings were more accurate and described what care has been given.
What the care home could do better:
The management and recording of medication in the home must be improved, including the safe storage of medication. Cleaning chemicals must also be securely stored at all times. When serious incidents happen they must be reported to the Commission. Records required for the smooth running of the home must be kept up to date. Residents or their representative should sign contracts and other documents. Information that helps staff to care for people should be kept up to date. The security of the home should be reviewed to keep people safe at all times.
