This service

Abberton Manor Nursing Home is registered to provide accommodation and care for up to 26 people in one adapted building, some of whom may be living with dementia. There were 16 people living at the service at the time of our inspection.

We found the following examples of good practice.

• At the time of the inspection, visits were not taking place. The service had looked at methods to keep people in touch with loved ones and the community. There was a screened off area of the service, which was well ventilated and could be easily be sanitised which could support face to face meetings when the current restrictions are eased.

• Staff were observed adhering to social distancing and signage was in place at various points around the service.

• Suitable plans were in place to care for people who were symptomatic or COVID-19 positive and to protect others living in the care home in the event of an outbreak.

• Social distancing between people was promoted and maintained wherever possible .

• To mitigate the impact of isolation, meaningful activities were provided.

• The service routinely tested people and staff. New admissions were isolated to help prevent the spread of infection.

• Good examples of Infection and prevention control began from the moment that staff arrived at work, where they would enter the separate donning/doffing area and remove the clothes that they travelled to work in to prevent contamination.

• The deputy manager saw routine and regular testing as vital, especially with the risk of asymptomatic spread.

• The service was clean and hygienic.

• Staff had received training in infection prevention and control practice.

We were assured that this service met good infection prevention and control guidelines.
