What the care home does well
There is a responsive and open approach seen in the management of the service. The Provider shows a commitment to complying with relevant legislation and the Commission is kept appropriately informed of events occurring at the home between inspection visits. This attitude allows other authorities to support the Provider and staff in their protection and care of the residents. The staff are carefully selected and they are well supervised and supported. Potential risks to residents are quickly identified and action is promptly taken to make sure they are not put at unacceptable risk. This work is done with recognition of the residents` rights to make choices about their lifestyles. Relatives and other professionals are consulted, when appropriate, as part of this assessment.
What has improved since the last inspection?
There have been considerable improvements since the last inspection. A Care Manager is once again in post and can oversee everyday management at the home. This means that there is now an experienced and competent person who can offer leadership and support to the junior staff. It also means that the Provider is better informed of areas requiring further investment and where the priorities lie. There are examples of improvement work to the accommodation, care practices and record keeping, and staff management.
