What the care home does well
Rosewood provides individual person centred care, which is focused on personal choice and preferences and tailored to meet the service users needs and providing a good quality service. The care plans and daily recording are very informative and comprehensive. Rosewood offers a good range of activities and has various lounges for service users to spend their time. The home is well run and managed with an open approach in working with external agencies. Rosewood is very clean and tidy yet lived in.
What has improved since the last inspection?
The care plans and daily recordings have been expanded and improved upon. Staff training has been increased with a staff training matrix being devised based upon mandatory training and specialised training developed through individual staff appraisals and the aims and objectives of the home. Staff are more diligent in completing the medication sheets.
What the care home could do better:
There are a few improvements still to be made to the home such as a chair needed for the new shower room and indicators on toilet doors. The care plans need to be developed further to provide individual guidance on support and direction for staff to follow in managing some potential difficult behaviours. The PRN (when required) medication needs to be firmed up to provide more precise detail in written form and a means to establish when medication is required. The home would benefit from having an assessment made as to equipment for service users for who have limited mobility and require assistance with standing.
