Inspection Summary


Overall summary & rating

Good

Updated 12 May 2021

Aaron View Care Home is registered to provide accommodation and care for up to 30 older people. At the time of our inspection there were 15 people living in the home.

We found the following examples of good practice.

The home had systems in place to support relatives to visit their family members, minimising the risk of infection. Relatives and friends were encouraged to keep in contact with their loved ones through telephone or video calls. The service had a pod situated at the front entrance for outdoor visits and this was heated in colder weather. There was a dedicated room for indoor visits, and in exceptional circumstances, the service facilitated visits to people’s own room. The service had risk assessed access routes into the home, so as much as feasibly possible, visitors did not enter shared living spaces.

We observed signage around the home to guide staff on the use of protective personal equipment (PPE) and appropriate handwashing technique. The premises were clean and hygienic. Frequent touch points, such as handrails and doorknobs were regularly cleaned. Staff supported people to keep apart as much as possible to try and maintain safe social distancing. For example, by moving furniture in communal areas further apart.

All people living and working at Aaron View Care Home had been offered a vaccine and were regularly tested for COVID-19 in line with government guidance.
