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
In addition to normal staff supervision records, additional brief supervision sessions also occur and are recorded. The home has a good record of supporting service users in a way that reduces the incidence of relapse and also has a good record for rehabilitating service users and moving them on to independent living. The latter was also supported by comments from the service users. Bedrooms were assessed as exceeding the minimum size standard at this inspection. See also service user survey results in the summary above.
What has improved since the last inspection?
Over the last year the home has been decorated throughout. Risk assessments have now been completed for all existing restrictions of liberty required for the protection of service users. Risk assessments now also contain other options explored before any restriction of liberty required for the protection of service users is recommended. To provide potential new service users, relatives and professionals with all the information needed to make an informed decision about the home, the Statement of Purpose now contains the qualifications and experience of the and staff and the number and size of the rooms in the home. The service users guide also now contains the views of the service users. Free access to the sharp kitchen knives has now been risk assessed to reduce the risk of injury. Consent to medication and first aid has been recorded to respect service users` rights and protect staff where they administer medication or first aid. The results from the bacterial analysis of the water supply have been sent to the Commission to reduce the risk of infection.
What the care home could do better:
Now that the results from user/relative satisfaction surveys have been collated, an annual development plan must be produced which reflects the survey results, and information from other quality assurance tools. This then needs to be made open to the service users, to allow measurement of achievement in improving quality. Although the care plans have now been updated to include all of the service users` needs, these now need to record actions required to fully function as a working document
