Personal Care Plans and Medication
There is a computerised state-or-the-art system of care plans which are developed and updated regularly in consultation with the resident and their relatives.
Medication is administered by trained staff and residents who wish to self-medicate, and are able to do, can do so. Detailed medication records are kept for each resident.
Management and senior staff at Paxton Hall operate an open door policy for residents, relatives and staff who wish to see them to discuss any matters. In addition to the daily feedback received by carers directly from residents and relatives, formal feedback is obtained directly from residents every month through discussions with them. Other stakeholders are consulted periodically.
There is also in place a formal complaints procedure and any complaints that may arise are taken seriously and investigated and dealt with promptly.
