Inspection Summary


Overall summary & rating

Good

Updated 1 December 2020

Woodlands Court Care home provides nursing and residential care and can accommodate 35 people. There were 26 people living in the service at the time of inspection.

We found the following examples of good practice.

• The provider ensured there was sufficient stock of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) in place including masks, gloves, aprons and hand sanitiser. Infection control polices had been updated to reflect the current national guidance and staff were wearing this appropriately.

• There was an separate building in the grounds of the service. This was able to support any person, who tested positive for COVID-19, living with Dementia and who would require additional support to isolate. This meant, people who tested negative in the service would be placed at a reduced risk and the people who required additional support to isolate, could do this with reduced distress.

• There was a testing programme in place for staff and people living in the service. This was to ensure if any staff or people had contracted COVID-19 and were asymptomatic, this was identified and acted upon in a timely way.

• The registered manager was aware of the admission process and understood how this would be implemented.

• The provider had ensured staff were skilled and had up to date knowledge in relation to infection prevention and control, use of PPE and COVID-19. This included competencies, which had been conducted in handwashing and putting on and taking off PPE. There was also an information board about hand washing in the service.

• The provider had a winter plan in place to keep people safe during the winter months.
