What follows are excerpts from this inspection report. For more information read the full report on the next tab.
What the care home does well
The home provides good social, personal and nursing care to clients who do require differing levels of specialist care due to their mental and physical presentations. This care is provided in comfortable surroundings that also offer a good standard of specialist equipment where it is needed such as disabled bathing and ceiling tract hoist in the Bungalow. The record keeping is good and is in a period of evolution following the change of ownership.
What has improved since the last inspection?
This is the first inspection since the home has changed ownership and it has set a baseline for comments to be made in this section by the inspector following the next inspection, which will be unannounced.
What the care home could do better:
The staff records need to be reviewed and any detail required by the homes own recruitment procedure, and the requirements of Schedule 2, need to be obtained as soon as possible. 8 weeks has been given to complete this work from the date of the inspection. The registered provider needs to take positive steps to recruit a manager to the home who is knowledgeable about the client group and skilled at managing a team of people who will identify the care needs of the clients and see that they are delivered safely. Three months has been given from the date of the inspection before the situation will be reviewed by the inspector.
