Care Homes for Older People Page 3 of 9 What we found: This random inspection was carried out as a result of moving and handling concerns that were brought to our attention. The focus of the inspection was therefore to look at how moving and handling is managed within the home. We chose a sample of four residents care plans to look at, two people funded through care management arrangements and two privately funded residents. We found for the funded residents, a moving and handling assessment and care plan had been carried out at the point of admission by the placing Borough and for the privately funded residents, a moving and handling assessment had been carried out by staff at the home. We found that two of the care plans for moving and handling had not been reviewed each month. One had been last reviewed in November 2009 and the other in February 2010. The home has ceiling hoisting throughout the home with individual slings provided for residents requiring hoisting, to ensure that residents are hoisted with the appropriate sling and to minimize the spread of infection. Residents are assessed and provided with appropriate equipment to meet their moving and handling needs. We were told that the wheelchair of one resident we sampled had now been repaired and that the home had worked with outside health professionals to make sure this persons moving and handling needs were appropriately met. We looked at staff training in moving and handling. We were shown a staff training matrix that showed that all the staff had received moving and handling training between Jan 2008 and Dec 2009. We cross referenced the matrix with a sample of four staff and found that moving and handling training certificates were held on file for these staff. We were told that moving and handling training was carried out in house by the homes trainer. We saw an up-to-date certificate for this member of staff to provide moving and handling training. Since the last key inspection of the home in April 2008 there have been changes to the management team. We spoke with the current manager who informed us that they were in the process of submitting an application to the Commission to become Registered Manager. We asked how management ensures that moving and handling training is enacted by the staff. We were told that there is Registered Nurse on duty each shift responsible for supervision of the staff out on the floor, and that hand-overs take place at each shift change to inform staff coming on duty of any changing needs concerning residents. What the care home does well: What they could do better: Care plans should be reviewed each month to make sure that they accurately reflect needs of residents.
