Inspection carried out on 14 November 2013

During an inspection looking at part of the service

Our previous inspection of Roebuck Nursing Home in August 2013 found that certain minimum standards of quality and safety had not been met. People had not been protected from the risks of unsafe or inappropriate care and treatment because accurate and appropriate records had not always been maintained. We judged that this had a moderate impact on people who lived at the home at the time.

During our inspection on 14 November 2013 we found that necessary improvements had been made.

We checked the care records relating to seven people who lived at the home. They all contained detailed and accurate information about people�s care, treatment and support needs. We saw that risk assessments had been reviewed regularly and the records used to monitor the care and treatment provided were up to date and had been completed properly.

A senior member of care staff told us, �Management have taken the records issue very seriously. We have all worked really hard to make the improvements needed and new audit systems are now used to make checks on a daily basis. Our care records have improved significantly since the last inspection.�
