What the care home does well
Residents and their visitors are satisfied as to how care is provided. They said that staff were kind and caring and attended to their care in a dignified manner. Staff appear to be committed to meeting service users needs. The registered providers are continuing with their programme of refurbishment. The home is homely and clean and tidy. Residents are satisfied with the food on offer.
What has improved since the last inspection?
Care planning and risk management processes have improved and contain much more individualised information about how to meet needs than in the past. Service users have received updated copies of their terms and conditions of occupancy. A new set of "sit- on" weighing scales has been purchased. The manager`s application for registration has been received and a fit person interview has taken place. A decision is pending as the Commission is awaiting receipt of further information in respect of the application.
What the care home could do better:
There are a number of requirements and recommendations outstanding from the previous report and these need to be addressed in a timely manner. Full care plans must be in place for all residents. Any restrictions on choice must be addressed through risk management processes. Procedures for the recording of medication must improve. There needs to be a regular activity programme. Staff would benefit from training on the Mistreatment of Vulnerable Adults. An overview of bedroom door locks and other restrictions around the home must be addressed including the replacement of locks to promote independence and choice in the home. The manager must apply for registration and enrol on the Registered Managers Award. The Commission must be informed of any event, which affects the wellbeing of residents, and copies of the monthly report must be forwarded to the Commission.
