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 follows a good pre-admission assessment process, ensuring that placement is only offered to those people whose needs the home can meet. The care planning process is person centred, the staff taking time to complete a residents care plan. This plan will highlight the specific needs of each resident and the actions the staff need to take in meeting those needs.
What has improved since the last inspection?
The two requirements issued at the last inspection have been met. A statement of terms and conditions is issued to representatives, and residents where appropriate, this ensures that information about the home is provided, and representatives are informed of fee`s payable and conditions of their relatives stay. The bathroom that had been out of use at the last inspection, has been repaired, meaning that there are now sufficient facilities to meet the needs of the residents.
What the care home could do better:
Although the care planning documentation is of good quality and provides the reader with a clear picture of the residents needs, wound care plans must detail the instructions for staff in respect of how often dressings need to be renewed. Presently a record is made in "daily records" when dressings are renewed, with no reference to when the next action is required. The décor and fabric of the existing home will be refurbished once the new building works have been completed. This will mean that residents will be provided with a more pleasing environment.
