The Care Inspectorate use a 6 point grading system:
6 – excellent
5 – very good
4 – good
3 – adequate
2 – weak
1 – unsatisfactory
We were graded on the three separate areas from the Care Standards guidelines and the scores we received were:
6 – Quality of Care and Support
5 – Quality of Staffing
5 – Quality of Management and Leadership
The Care Inspectorate grades all organisations against three separate areas and gives an overall scores for each section. We are assessed against two quality statements per section and each organisation is given a score for each statement. In total we received four grade 6’s and two grade 5’s.
These scores are excellent news for us and it further highlights that we provide good quality support, we are true to our values and that we put the people we work for at the centre of everything we do. I would like to stress that this is only possible because of the fantastic staff that SOL has.
A very big thank you to everybody who took part in our inspection report and hopefully next year we can achieve 6’s across the board!
