A POOLE care home which looks after adults with learning disabilities has failed yet another inspection.

Officials from the Care Quality Commission discovered that some people at Coral House at Alder Hills, Parkstone – which is already in special measures having been judged inadequate in June and March last year - ‘had not been kept consistently safe’.

Actions had not been taken in response to safeguarding incidents and risks to people were not fully assessed and managed, said the report.

“There remained some shortfalls in the management of people’s medicines and some people’s health care needs had not been met or followed up with health care professionals", they added.

Additionally it found that the records kept about some people were inaccurate and incomplete, with failure to consistently follow or update when their needs had changed, and that some people’s food, fluids and weights were not accurately monitored and reviewed to make sure they kept well.

The reported noted that: “There continued to be a high turnover of staff and some staff did not have the skills and knowledge or had been trained to be able to meet people’s needs.” At the time of the inspection, six people were living at Coral House.

In all, the CQC discovered seven breaches of the regulations at the home, which is run by Priory Adult Care.

The ‘inadequate’ rating follows an inspection in March 2017, which resulted in the home going into special measures although, by June, the CQC had found ‘improvements in how responsive the service was’.

“The registered provider agreed to send us a monthly action plan as to how they were meeting the regulations,” said the CQC.

“This was provided every month as required. However, the action and progress plans did not accurately reflect the findings of this inspection.”

It did find, however, that cleanliness had improved and that staff were caring and treated people with dignity and respect and that staff and residents had good relationships.

A spokesperson for Coral House, said: “We take the CQC’s report extremely seriously and we have put in place a robust and comprehensive action plan to address all the matters raised.

"Senior managers continue to work closely with the CQC and other partner organisations to ensure that we deliver the high standard of care our service users and their relatives expect.”
