This inspection took place on 4 October 2017 and was unannounced. This means prior to the inspection people were not aware we were inspecting the service on that day.

Greenside Court is a care home with nursing which can accommodate 20 people with physical disabilities, or mental disabilities associated with Huntington's Disease. People with Huntington's Disease are cared for in a specially designed 10 bedded unit. The home was purpose built in 2003, and is situated in Greasbrough, a residential area of Rotherham, and is near to local shops and facilities. At the time of the inspection there were 18 people living at the home.

There was no registered manager in place for the service. The home had a manager who was in the process of registering with the Care Quality Commission (CQC). A registered manager is a person who has registered with CQC 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.

Staff employed at the home had been recruited in a way that helped to keep people safe because thorough checks were completed prior to them being offered a post.

People received care that was delivered in line with the Mental Capacity Act (MCA) because people were supported to make day to day choices and decisions about their lives. Appropriate and timely applications to ensure that restrictions on people's liberty to leave the home had been made for everyone that needed them.

There were enough staff to meet people's needs and to enable them to engage with people in a relaxed and unhurried manner.
