Inspection Summary


Overall summary & rating

Outstanding

Updated 13 January 2021

Fremington Manor is a care home which provides nursing and personal care for up to 60 people

The home is a large manor house with a purpose built extension. At the time of the inspection there were 36 people living at the service.

We found the following examples of good practice.

There was an outbuilding with a shower where staff changed and put on their personal protective equipment (PPE) before entering the main building.

Outside each person’s room there was a box with PPE, disinfectant and bags for disposal of used PPE. These boxes were checked throughout the day to ensure staff had ready access to the right equipment.

Additional space had been allocated to ensure staff were able to take breaks and keep within social distancing rules. Chairs were removed and tape placed on the carpet to show the distance between seats.

Additional cleaning regimes had been implemented. This included more regular cleaning of touch points such as door handles, keypads and handrails.

Staff had received training and support to work safely in a pandemic, such as Covid-19. Where staff needed to isolate due to a positive test or exposure to someone else with a positive test, they were continued to be paid.

There were clear risk assessments in place to ensure those staff who were more vulnerable from Covid- 19 had a protective plan in place. This included workers who had underlying health conditions, pregnant team members and those from an ethnic background.

The staff team said they had been very well supported by the management team and provider. Staff had received gift certificates for their continued hard work. Staff had access to one to one supervision or independent counselling if needed.

People were being supported to isolate in their rooms due to an outbreak. Staff were making additional comfort visits to ensure they were cared for.

The activities team continued to provide support to people and the provider had given additional funds to ensure peoples’ social needs could be met. For example, they had purchased an extra-large TV so people could take part in Zoom quizzes.
