Updated 17 March 2021

Southwell Court Care Home is a residential care home providing personal care for up to 82 people. At the time of the inspection there were 68 people living at the home. People were cared for over three floors in one purpose-built building, some of whom were living with advanced dementia.

We found the following examples of good practice.

The service had managed an outbreak of COVID-19 well. People who tested positive for COVID-19 were requested to self-isolate. Some people were unable to self-isolate, these people were closely monitored by staff to ensure they were not coming into close contact with others.

Regular testing for COVID-19 was in place. The registered manager had supported both staff and people living at the home in the roll out of the COVID-19 vaccination programme.

The home was very clean and housekeeping staff kept records to demonstrate the high level of cleaning throughout the home. The home implemented deep cleaning of areas where people who had previously tested positive for COVID-19, had been cared for. The service had invested in equipment to strengthen cleaning processes to minimise the risk of possible transmission of COVID-19.

People were encouraged to maintain communication with their loved ones through the use of technology. The service had created a safe visiting space for when visits were deemed to be safe. Robust measures were in place to keep people safe during visits.
