Updated 14 January 2021

Brookfield Residential Home is a care home. It is registered to provide accommodation with personal care for up to 29 people who might be living with dementia. The home is an adapted building which offers accommodation across two floors.

We found the following examples of good practice.

The provider had acted to make sure people could have visitors safely. Accurate temperature and symptom checks were made prior to entry. Hand washing was also required. Family booked appointments to visit the home and saw their relatives in a protective screened area in the front lounge. Those unable to visit used an electronic tablet to see and speak with their relatives virtually.

Staff had spent time with people to help them to understand the need for personal protective equipment (PPE) and how they were feeling about the changes.

The provider followed government PPE guidance and practice. The registered manager followed the risk reduction framework in documentation. Senior staff had training to support staff to follow best practice.

The provider followed government guidance testing staff weekly.

The staff room had screens in place to protect staff. Staff changed their clothes at the start and end of their shift to reduce the risk of transmission of infection. The staff team had responded positively to the new infection prevention and control procedures. Staff were well supported by the provider.

The provider worked well with GPs conducting rounds in the home.

There were detailed and thorough risk assessments undertaken by the registered manager.
