April 2017

Well, its that time of year again when we are planning for service user holidays, with the first one being booked to the Lake District in April.

Some people have already been to Blackpool for a short break

We have also been spending lots of time preparing the allotment for spring and summer growing.

This month we have had new flooring on the first floor to make it more homely and we are now planning to decorate once we can all agree on the wallpaper choices!

We have been working hard to address the issues raised in the CQC inspection and have introduced several measures to make sure our medications are managed safely and we can quickly identify anything before it goes wrong. We have introduced a twice daily count and updated our weekly and monthly audits to make sure we are checking everything we need to.

We have also introduced medication management meetings where we meet and discuss medication issues on a monthly basis.

Medication management is also a standing agenda item on the team meeting. We are hopeful that all these measures are effective and we can be rated as Good in Safe and Well led when we are next inspected.

Service users continue to say they are happy and feel safe at Rockmount so we are very  pleased with that.
