Richard Cox House is a ‘care home’. People in care homes receive accommodation and nursing or personal care. The service accommodates up to 29 people in one adapted building. At the time of the inspection there were 14 people living there.

We found the following examples of good practice.

The service was clean and hygienic. Cleaning schedules had been enhanced and frequent cleaning was carried out throughout the day.

Staff followed the requirements for the use of personal protective equipment (PPE) and had received training in infection control, taking off and putting on of their PPE and handwashing.

Relatives had been supported to safely visit their loved ones in exceptional circumstances in line with the national guidance. For example, when a person was approaching the end of their life.

Whole home testing was in place for people and staff. In addition to this they were undertaking daily lateral flow testing for staff arriving on shift.
