Inspection Summary


Overall summary & rating

Good

Updated 19 September 2020

Te Hira Care Home is a care home registered to provide care for up to 14 older people. At the time of our visit 12 people lived at the home and some of those people lived with dementia.

We found the following examples of good practice.

¿ The temperature of visitors was recorded when they arrived at the home. Visitors were provided with personal protective equipment including disposable gloves, apron and masks to protect people.

¿ A colour coded system informed staff and visitors what personal protective equipment they needed to wear in different areas of the home to prevent the transmission of infection.

¿ People's clothing and bedding were laundered individually to reduce the risks of cross contamination.

¿ Staff had been provided with 'wellbeing packs' which contained personal protective equipment to increase their safety when they were not at work.

¿ Risks associated with staff using public transport to travel to and from work had been reduced. For example, a bedroom has been created for staff so they could remain at the home between their shifts.

¿ The management team were proactively preparing for a possible second wave of the pandemic. Preparation included purchasing extra personal protective equipment and food supplies.

Further information is in the detailed findings below.
