10th April 2018 - During a routine inspection pdf icon

Greenwood Homecare Peterborough is a domiciliary care agency. It provides personal care to people living in their own houses and flats. It provides a service, including a ‘live in’ care workers service (this means that there are staff supporting people 24 hours a day, seven days a week) to both older and younger adults.

This is the first inspection of this service since they registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC) in March 2017. This announced inspection took place on 10 and 24 April 2018. There were 19 people supported with the regulated activity of personal care during this inspection.

Why the service is rated good.

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) records showed that the service had a registered manager. 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.

Staff had an adequate understanding of the Mental Capacity Act 2005 (MCA). People were supported to have maximum choice and control of their lives and staff supported them in the least restrictive way possible. Staff knew how to report any suspicions of harm and poor care practice.

People were supported by staff to take their prescribed medication safely. Processes were followed by staff members to ensure that infection prevention and control was promoted and the risk of cross contamination was reduced when supporting people in their own homes.

People were supported by staff with their care needs in a caring, and respectful manner. People’s dignity and privacy was maintained and promoted by the staff members supporting them.

People and their relatives’ were involved in the setting up and review of their or their family member’s individual support and care plans. People were supported by staff to have enough to eat and drink.

People were assisted to access a range of external health care professionals to maintain their health and well-being. Staff and external health care professionals would when required, support people at the end of their life, to have a comfortable and as dignified a death as possible.

People had individualised care and support plans in place which documented their needs. These plans informed staff on how a person would like their care and support to be given, in line with external health and social care professional advice.

There were enough staff to meet people’s individual care and support needs. Individual risks to people were identified and monitored by staff to allow them to live as independent and safe life as practicable. Staff were only employed within the service after all essential checks had been suitably completed. Staff were trained to be able to provide care which met people’s individual needs. The standard of staff members’ work performance was reviewed through spot checks and supervisions.

Complaints received were investigated and responded to. Actions were taken to reduce the risk of recurrence. The registered manager sought feedback about the quality of the service provided from people. There was an on-going quality monitoring process in place to identify areas of improvement needed within the service.
