What the care home does well
The home is accessible to people who use the service. The residents health and personal care needs are met by the home`s good management system. The activities provided to engage the residents as well as the home`s efforts to assist the service user to attend places of worship and keep in touch with friends and families are commendable.
What has improved since the last inspection?
The garden is well maintained and the waste from people smoking is dealt with properly. a new manager has been employed to run the home.
What the care home could do better:
It is important for the home to review care plans and risk assessments. These ensure that the residents needs are identified and proper care plan and risk assessment are completed to meet their needs. We are concerned with the way the medicines are stored and administered. The manager must make sure that the temperature of the room where medicines are kept is not high (or above 25 degree Celsius) and staff who administer medication sign the medication administration sheet to confirm that the residents have taken their medicines. It is also important for the manager to introduce a system of quality assurance so that the people who use the service and their relatives and others can give their views about the quality of the facilities and services.
