Overall summary & rating

Good

Updated 16 October 2020

Beech Lawn Care Home is a care home providing personal care and accommodation for up to 19 people with mental health needs in one adapted building.

We found the following examples of good practice.

• The service sent letters or emails to visitors prior to arranging a suitable time to visit. These included a code of conduct to outline the expectations during visits to ensure people’s safety and reduce the risk of infection transmission. Visitors had access to alcohol hand gel and face masks during their visits.

• Staff took time to speak with people, show them how to put on and take off their personal protective equipment (PPE) and explain the risks should they choose not to wear PPE. Staff wore PPE at all times to reduce the risk of transmitting the infection.

• Staff worked with people and their relatives to ensure they were aware of isolation procedures should they be needed. Relatives were encouraged to attend garden visits and use video calls and phone calls to support people’s well-being.
