Updated 29 October 2020

Belmont Grange Nursing and Residential Home is a care home which is registered to provide both nursing and residential care for up to 30 adults. At the time of this review, 30 people were living at the home, including some people who were living with a dementia type illness.

Belmont Grange Nursing and Residential Home is a large detached care home set out over two floors.

We found the following examples of good practice.

• The home had a dedicated infection prevention and control lead who was also their clinical lead. They monitored and ensured all staff adhered to current, national guidance and maintained high standards of infection prevention and control throughout the home.

• Staff were observed wearing appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) at all times. Suitable supplies of PPE were available. Staff received regular training in infection prevention and control measures and appropriate use of PPE.

• The home ensured people moving into the home, isolating or presenting with any symptoms were supported safely in accordance with national guidance.

• The home provided people and their relatives with information to support their understanding of the isolation processes and visiting procedures.

• People were cared for by a dedicated staff team who provided a support bubble to meet all their needs and reduce any feelings of isolation and loneliness. This included a range of individual social activities and contact with friends and family.

• The home had purchased their own visiting Pod to support people to have face to face contact with friends and relatives. This was arranged through an appointment system. National guidance was being followed to ensure visits took place at a safe social distance. Infection prevention and control measures were in place to avoid potential transmission with others.

• The home was aligned with a GP practice and weekly virtual ward rounds had been introduced. Other care professionals who worked closely with the service attended these.

• All staff and residents were actively participating in the Covid testing programme. Staff were tested weekly and people living at the home, monthly. All staff and residents were in the process of having their winter flu vaccinations.
