Summary of report content

Healthwatch Warwickshire did a follow up unannounced Enter and View visit to Orton Manor Limited following from their last visit on 3rd February 2015. The team indicated that there was considerable improvement throughout the home compared to the previous visit. Although the storage of hoists was still an unresolved issue the recommendation regarding incorrectly coloured or tied up emergency pull cords in communal bathrooms and toilets had been addressed and was no longer an issue as they had been replaced in red cord. There was a relaxed feel to the home and Authorised Representatives felt that staff were not rushing around as much as observed at the previous visit. The staff spoken to were positive about the support they received, and the redecorations work being carried out. They also found the in-house training being carried out very helpful. Residents were positive in their view of the home and staff too. The team agreed that the overall feeling of the home was calm, relaxed and very well organised. Further recommendations were made: • Continue with redecoration of the first floor, with handrails being repainted in a suitable colour. • To ensure completion of a new storage area for hoists on the ground floor at the current site of the photocopier. • To ensure that staff put incontinence pads and other items away in the designated storage area. • Ensure that all emergency pull cords are the correct length. • Make safe the uneven and loose slabs in the garden area. A follow up visit was recommended in one year’s time.
