Winchcome Place care home remains rated ‘Good’ by CQC

Posted August 8, 2017

‘The service continued to work to keep people as safe as possible, by the way care was delivered; in terms of health and safety; premises maintenance and the provision of competent staff. The service had a robust recruitment process to ensure as far as possible, suitable staff were employed. Ongoing work was being undertaken to maintain and maximise premises safety. There was a need for additional staffing on the second floor at key times of day and in key areas.’

‘Healthcare needs were well met and health issues were monitored. However, we found room for some further development in terms of recording with regard to fluid intake and turning records for some people. Some additional specialist equipment was needed. For example, additional ‘crash mats’ were required to replace the pressure mattresses currently being used, in some rooms, to reduce the risk of injury from falls.’
