Inspection Summary


Overall summary & rating

Good

Updated 10 March 2021

Folkestone Nursing Home is a 'care home'. People in care homes receive accommodation and nursing or personal care as single package under one contractual agreement. Folkestone Nursing Home accommodates 45 people in one adapted building. At the time of our inspection there were 35 people living at the home.

We found the following examples of good practice:

¿ The home had set up areas in the external grounds to help identify potential visitors’ signs and symptoms of COVID-19 through screening away from the home. Visits were enabled in tented areas (weather-permitting) and appropriate screening was used to help further reduce risks of spreading infection.

¿ The home had no cases of COVID-19 during the first wave of the pandemic and one case at the time of our inspection. Staff told us they attributed the low cases to planning and acting over and above national guidance, such as ensuring adequate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and testing in advance of, or in addition to, national requirements.
