Care Homes for Older People Page 3 of 8 What we found: The staff at the home were not told that this inspection was to take place, although many weeks before the inspection we (The Care Quality Commission) asked the Manager of the home to complete a form called an Annual Quality Assurance Assessment (AQAA) to tell us what they did at present, what they felt they did well and what they needed to do better. This helps us to determine if the management of the home see the service they provide the same way that we do. We received the completed AQAA form in March 2010. We also sent out survey forms to some of the residents and also to the staff. These survey forms asked them to give us their opinions about the care and facilities provided. We received 16 surveys back from the residents and 17 from the staff. Some of the comments from the residents were: Excellent care. A nice friendly place. A lovely calm, caring atmosphere. Staff are dedicated and professional. Staff commented that the training was good and that they are well supported. Some did comment that they would like to see more trips out for the residents. We discussed this with the Manager who informed us that they were hoping to purchase a mini bus for the home. This would enable them to organise more outings. We spent 4 hours at the home and most of this time was spent on the Nursing Unit. To make sure that people were being cared for safely and properly we examined care and medicine records. We looked at 2 care plans on the Nursing Unit. A care plan details the individual care and support needs that a resident may have and also shows how those needs are to be met by the staff. A new computerised system is now in place for the care plans. The care plans that we looked at contained a lot of information and showed what the residents could do for themselves and what they needed help with. They also provided a lot of information about the residents past life, their daily routines and their interests. We went to look at the care being provided to 2 of the very ill residents on the Nursing Unit. They looked very well cared for. Lots of specialised equipment was in place to ensure that every comfort and care was being delivered. Equipment necessary for the prevention and treatment of pressure sores was available and in use. We then went onto the Residential Unit and looked at how the medicines, including controlled drugs, were ordered, stored, administered and recorded. We saw that the staff who handle the medicines are suitably trained to do so and that a safe system of medicine management was in place. We also looked at how complaints are handled to ensure that people know how to, and to whom, they can complain. A complaints procedure was displayed within the home and was also included in the Service User Guide. It was easy to understand and tells people that their complaints will be responded to and a full written response will be given within 28 days. We saw that a record is kept of any complaint made and includes details of any investigation and any action that the management may have taken to put things right. The manager informed us in the AQAA document that no complaints have been made to them in the last 12 months. No complaints have been made to us in the last 12 months. We also looked at the staff training files to check if they had received training in the safeguarding of vulnerable people. This training helps reduce the possible risk of harm or mistreatment to the residents. We saw that staff had been trained in the safeguarding of Care Homes for Older People Page 4 of 8 vulnerable people. Documents were also in place to assist and guide the staff in the event of any safeguarding incident occurring. No safeguarding incidents have occurred in the last 12 months.
