What the care home does well
The home provides residents with a clean and comfortable place to live. The food is satisfactory and there is plenty of choice and variety. Staff are caring and kind and there is enough staff on duty at the home to meet the needs of residents effectively. Staff recruitment practices are well carried out and well documented to protect the safety and welfare of residents. Written records are satisfactorily kept and provide staff with enough information to give good quality care.
What has improved since the last inspection?
The last inspection focused on the Intermediate Care Centre. Since the last inspection the bath in Magnolia unit has been fitted with a hoist and the unit has been redecorated. A new Service Users Guide has been written for users of the Intermediate Care Service. Care plans have improved and medication records are accurately kept. The staff roster in this part of the home now provides the designation of staff.
What the care home could do better:
Daily records could be improved to provide more information. Care Plans and risk assessments should be reviewed monthly to ensure they reflect the changing needs of users. Service users should be provided with a range of activities that provide interest and stimulation.
