Updated 20 April 2021

Charles Davies House is registered to provide accommodation and personal care to a maximum of 13 people living with a mental health condition. At the time of our inspection 13 people lived at the service.

We found the following examples of good practice.

¿ Visitors had to follow rules to prevent infection entering the home. These included having a COVID-19 test and the wearing of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).

¿ The layout of furniture had tried to maximise social distancing within communal living areas as much as practicably possible.

¿ To prevent infection outbreaks strict processes were followed when people were admitted to the home. Prior to admission a negative COVID-19 test result would be required followed by a period of self- isolation.

¿ Staff were required to take a COVID-19 test three times a week and people were tested, as a minimum, every 28 days. Where people or staff tested positive, they were required to self-isolate in line with current guidance.

¿ There was a good supply of PPE and this was also made available to visitors.

¿ A dedicated domestic team were also supported by staff in the cleaning of the premises. Cleaning was ongoing throughout the day paying particular attention to high touch areas such as door handles, light switches and handrails.

¿ Staff received training in the donning and doffing of PPE.
