What the care home does well
The home was found to be clean and in good decorative order throughout. The home is well managed. There was positive feedback from all those whose views were sought on the standards of care provided at the home.
What has improved since the last inspection?
At the last inspection the manager informed that the care plans were to be developed to provide a summary for the staff on service user key needs. It was found that a summary of the care plan had been completed for each service user. The new service user within the learning disability category had been successfully introduced to the home and was settling in well.
What the care home could do better:
New staff must not start working at the home until, and then under supervision, a POVAFirst check has been returned. The home should now develop the staff training programme under the LDAF framework to ensure that the staff have the skills to meets the needs of people with a learning disability. The potential harm posed by uncovered radiators will be reduced with the covers being fitted.
