People should be cared for in a clean environment and protected from the risk of infection (outcome 8)

Meeting this standard

We checked that people who use this service

  • Providers of services comply with the requirements of regulation 12, with regard to the Code of Practice for health and adult social care on the prevention and control of infections and related guidance.

How this check was done

We looked at the personal care or treatment records of people who use the service, carried out a visit on 2 January 2014, observed how people were being cared for and talked with people who use the service. We talked with staff.

Our judgement

People were cared for in a clean, hygienic environment.

Reasons for our judgement

We saw that The Rosewood was very clean and tidy when we conducted our inspection. The kitchen surfaces were clean and free from clutter. All rooms of the home were clean and tidy, floor coverings were in good condition with no trip hazards. This meant that people who used the service received care and support in an environment which was clean and safe.

We saw that the home had an infection control policy and a hand hygiene policy. We saw that the policies had been reviewed by the registered manager on an annual basis. The registered manager had a good understanding of infection prevention and control. She described and confirmed the availability and use of personal protective equipment such as disposable gloves and she showed us supplies of these in the en-suite room of the person who used the service. This meant that the service had mitigated against the risks associated with infection.
