A housing support service in Dundee has been urged to improve its communication and storing of medical records after a positive inspection report.
Jericho Society Dundee Housing Support, which offers support to men aged 18 and over with substance abuse issues, had an unannounced visit by the Care Inspectorate.
A report said management along with care and support were both “good” at the facility in Artillery Lane.
The report added: “The service had built up good connections with a variety of local authorities.
“Referrals came from a range of services and included self-referrals, local authority and voluntary agencies, both local and across Scotland.
“The initial assessment looked at areas where service users may require support and this was linked to the risk assessment process and associated risk management form.”
Bosses at the Care Inspectorate also suggested recommendations, adding: “The service should consider developing a clear procedure in relation to recording and communication.
“Daily handover notes were recorded, but staff do not complete service user specific daily recordings, only making use of incident forms to record exceptional events. Medication records should be stored in service users’ files, in date order to allow for audit and referral where necessary.”
The purpose-built accommodation is made up of 12 fully-furnished one- bedroom flats. Service users are aged 18 or over with a serious alcohol dependency.
The charity had not responded to a request for comment.
