What the care home does well
Lickhill Manor has a very stable and committed staff team, and this is evident from the number of years many staff have worked at the home. There is a pleasant atmosphere in the home and all staff were observed to be interacting well with the residents during the inspection. Lickhill Manor has a robust recruitment procedure and is committed to staff training. The grounds are well maintained providing pleasant views from the home.
What has improved since the last inspection?
Since the last inspection the home has further invested into the appearance of the home. This has been superficial given the home`s plans to extend and upgrade the home are imminent. The home has commenced a staff supervision program, which is to be expanded. Training courses for staff have improved since the last inspection and a record of all training is now maintained. A fire risk assessment and contingency plan have been implemented since the last inspection to further protect the residents and staff. The service User`s Guide has been updated and copies were available for residents and anyone enquiring about the home.
What the care home could do better:
The care records should be more consistent, and reflect the total care needs of the residents. The care records should also direct the nurses and carers on to how to deliver the care to the residents. A full quality audit must be carried out incorporating the views of the residents and other professionals using the services. This should be used in conjunction with the homes annual development plan.
