Residents received a full review of all their medical care and their medication was updated as necessary. Residents with whom inspectors spoke expressed satisfaction with the medical care provided to them. A physiotherapist was employed by the HSE to offer services to the residents and she was seen in the centre attending to residents during the inspection.

Unannounced visits and the annual review of the quality and safety of the care and services provided to residents as required by Regulation 23 had been completed and the reports were available for inspection. There was evidence of learning from previous HIQA inspections as to the completion of these reviews; comprehensive lines of inquiry were applied, action plans, timeframes and responsible persons were identified. The annual review sought and incorporated feedback from residents and families. While records indicated some repeat failings over the course of provider reviews, these HIQA inspection findings found that these matters were generally satisfactorily resolved at the time of this inspection, for example in relation to staff supervisions, training deficits, healthcare support plans and residents' personal goals.

The person in charge had submitted a completed self assessment tool on dementia care to the Authority with relevant policies and procedures prior to the inspection. The person in charge had assessed the compliance level of the centre through the self assessment tool, but a number of improvements had been implemented since the completion of the assessment tool and the findings and judgments of the inspector were more favourable than the initial provider's judgments. The inspector found that improvements required on the inspection in March 2014 had generally been implemented. These are discussed throughout the report and the Action Plan at the end of this report identifies areas where improvements are required to comply with the Health Act 2007 (Care and Welfare of Residents in Designated Centre's for Older People) Regulations 2013 and the National Quality Standards for Residential Care Settings for Older People in Ireland.
