What the care home does well
The home employs caring and attentive staff who are much appreciated by the residents. "Staff are very kind" said one, and "you only have to ask and its done" said another. The home puts staff through a comprehensive drug training programme which ensures better protection for residents. There is an excellent Fire Risk Assessment which meets the Fire Precautions Regulations.
What has improved since the last inspection?
A spacious new shower room has been installed which is more suitable for residents. A new post to cover laundry and domestic duties has been created and is being advertised.
What the care home could do better:
Care plans need regular auditing to make sure they reflect current needs of residents. A more systematic way of keeping the care plan sheets would help to make them more usable. Although there are examples of good training, a training plan would identify staff training needs and gaps in training. More training is needed in the protection of vulnerable adults. The home must record and monitor complaints and concerns to ensure that residents and relatives have confidence that the proper procedure is followed. The laundry room floor does not comply with hygiene requirements. The home must provide a secure lockable medicines trolley to prevent any accidental misuse while it is unsupervised.
