We are very pleased that Quarry House (Fishponds, Bristol BS16) has now been rated ‘Good’ in the latest CQC inspection. The CQC report is available on-line and here.

The report highlights the excellent person-centred care given by our team to all our residents.

Congratulations and thanks go to everyone at Team Quarry House.

The Inspectors description of our service:

“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 was meeting the legal requirements and regulations associated with the Health and Social Care Act 2008, and to provide a rating for the service under the Care Act 2014.

The inspection was carried out by a lead inspector, a bank inspector and two experts by experience. An expert by experience is a person who has personal experience of using or caring for someone who uses this type of care service.

Before the inspection, we had asked the provider to complete a Provider Information Return (PIR). This is a form that asks the provider to give some key information about the service, what the service does well and improvements they planned to make. We reviewed the information included in the PIR and used it to assist in our planning of the inspection. Prior to the inspection, we looked at information we had about the service. This information included the statutory notifications that the provider had sent to CQC. A notification is information about important events, which the service is required to send us by law.

We spent a period observing how people were spending their time and the interactions between them and the staff team. We did this to assess what the quality of care was for those people who could not describe this for themselves. This was because some people had a degree of cognitive impairment or were living with dementia.

We spoke individually with 16 people. Eleven relatives were happy to speak with us and share their thoughts about the home. We spent time with the chief executive, registered manager and deputy. We spoke individually with 11 staff. We looked at six people’s care records, together with other records relating to their care and the running of the service. This included three staff employment records, policies and procedures, audits and quality assurance reports.”
