Care Quality Commission Report 23 January 2018
We carried out this inspection under Section 60 of the Health and Social Care Act 2008 as part of our regulatory functions. This inspection was planned to check whether the provider is meeting the legal requirements and regulations associated with the Health and Social Care Act 2008, to look at the overall quality of the service, and to provide a rating for the service under the Care Act 2014.
This comprehensive inspection took place on 5 January 2018 and was unannounced. The inspection visit was carried out by one inspector.
Jason Hylton Court is a care home located in Swadlincote, South Derbyshire. People in care homes receive accommodation and nursing or personal care as single package under one contractual agreement. CQC regulates both the premises and the care provided, and both were looked at during this inspection. Jason Hylton Court is registered to provide a care home service with nursing for up to 40 people in one adapted building with bedrooms provided over three floors and three lounge areas and a dining area on the ground floor. An enclosed patio area was available that people could access. At the time of the inspection there were 33 people using the service.
The inspection was informed by information sent in the Provider Information Return. This is information we require providers to send us at least once annually to give some key information about the service, what the service does well and improvements they plan to make. We also reviewed information we held about the service. This included information from the local authority and clinical commissioning group regarding their monitoring visits at the service and statutory notifications the registered manager had sent us. A statutory notification is information about important events which the provider is required to send to us by law. We used this to formulate our inspection plan.
During the inspection we spoke with five people who used the service and observed how staff interacted with them. We also spoke with two people’s relatives and with the registered manager, the administrator, a nurse, three care staff and two activities coordinators. We looked at two people’s care records to check that the care they received matched the information in their records. We reviewed two staff files to see how staff were recruited. We looked at the training records to see how staff were trained and supported to deliver care appropriate to meet each person’s needs. We looked at the systems the provider had in place to ensure the quality of the service was continuously monitored and reviewed to drive improvement, such as their quality monitoring audits which included infection control audits and fire safety checks.
