What the care home does well
Service users spoken to appeared to be aware of established care routines for themselves.
What has improved since the last inspection?
There has been some work done to upgrade and refurbish bedrooms in the home. This has included the addition of some en suite facilities. A bed replacement programme has begun with 5 new beds purchased. Some flooring has been replaced in bathrooms and two baths replaced. The home has been in need of refurbishment and it appears that positive headway is being made.
What the care home could do better:
The improvement in facilities by the addition of en suites to some bedrooms is welcomed however this affects the useable floor space and registration of bedrooms as double rooms. There has been no communication with the Commission for Social Care Inspection as is required by The Care Homes Regulations 2001. Improved communication with the Provider would be welcomed. Care plans are again highlighted as lacking in sufficient detail and personalisation to enable staff to deliver the care required. There are poor procedures in place regarding Protection of vulnerable adults to ensure that appropriate agencies are consulted and that service users statutory rights are respected.
