Summary of report content

Healthwatch Staffordshire conducted an announced Enter and View visit. This is a way of ensuring that all services delivered are acceptable and the welfare of the resident, patient or other service-user is not compromised in any way. Healthwatch Staffordshire visited The Heathers Nursing Home, on 12/06/2018. The summary of findings highlighted areas in relation to patient feedback, staff feedback and observation. Healthwatch Staffordshire found that we found a home which offered high standards of facilities and care. Most of the findings of the most recent CQC inspection had been, or were being, acted on. were several areas of concern relating to the health and safety of residents, staff and visitors. The recommendations within the report are to consider the extent to which activities are offered across 7 days per week and are aligned to the individual interests and life stories of residents. Also they recommend how support is given to staff who find e-learning difficult to undertake and then to apply and embed in their working practices.
