23rd January 2018 - During a routine inspection
This inspection took place on 23 and 24 January 2018 and was announced. Creative Support - Sutherland Court provides care and support to people living in specialist ‘extra care’ housing. Extra care housing is purpose-built or adapted single household accommodation in a shared site or building. The accommodation is bought or rented, and is the occupant’s own home. People’s care and housing are provided under separate contractual agreements. CQC does not regulate premises used for extra care housing; this inspection looked at people’s personal care and support service.
People using the service live in 50 one or two bedroom apartments located in a single apartment block within the London Borough of Bromley. Not everyone using the service receives regulated activity; CQC only inspects the service being received by people provided with ‘personal care’; help with tasks related to personal hygiene and eating. Where they do we also take into account any wider social care provided.
The service had a registered manager in post. A registered manager is a person who has registered with the Care Quality Commission to manage the service. Like registered providers, they are ‘registered persons’. Registered persons have legal responsibility for meeting the requirements in the Health and Social Care Act 2008 and associated Regulations about how the service is run.
We found areas requiring improvement because Medicine Administration Records (MARs) had not always been correctly completed by staff and did not demonstrate that people had received their medicines at appropriate intervals. Staffing levels did not always meet the planned allocation on each shift. People’s care records were not always up to date and accurate. The provider conducted checks and audits in a range of areas but these were not always consistently effective in identifying issues and driving improvements.
People were protected from the risk of abuse because staff were aware of the different types and signs of abuse, and the action to take if they suspected abuse had occurred. Staff also knew to report any accidents and incidents, and records showed that senior staff reviewed incident records and acted to reduce the risk of repeat occurrence to keep people safe. The provider followed safe recruitment practices. The provider had systems in place to protect people from the risk of infection.
Staff sought consent from people when offering them support and demonstrated an understanding of how the Mental Capacity Act 2005 (MCA) applied to their roles. People were supported to have maximum choice and control of their lives and staff supported them in the least restrictive way possible; the policies and systems in the service supported this practice.
Staff were supported in their roles through regular supervision, appraisal, and the provider’s training programme which was due for completion in April 2018. People were supported to access healthcare services where required and to maintain a balanced diet where this was a part of their assessed needs. The provider worked in partnership with other health and social care professionals to ensure people received consistent, joined up care and support.
People’s needs were holistically assessed to support staff in developing care plans which reflected their preferences and choices in the way they received support. Staff treated people with care and consideration, and encouraged their independence. People told us that they were treated with dignity and that their privacy was respected. They were also involved in decisions about their care and treatment. The service offered a range of activities for people to take part in, in support of their need for social engagement.
The provider had a complaints policy and procedure in place and people told us they knew how to raise concerns if needed. Records showed that senior staff had followed the provider’s complaints procedure in investigating and responding to any complaints they had receive
