Meeting this standard

We checked that people who use this service

  • Providers of services comply with the requirements of regulation 12, with regard to the Code of Practice for health and adult social care on the prevention and control of infections and related guidance.

How this check was done

Our judgement

People lived in a clean and safe environment.

User experience

One person said, "The staff here are good, they help me when I need it , but let me make my own decisions as far as I am able".

Another person said, "I like living here, we go to the theatre and football matches".

Other evidence

We saw from the records that staff had received training in infection control and staff confirmed this to be the case.

There were suitable systems in place to make sure that the home was kept clean and free from odours. Protective aprons and gloves were available for staff to use to prevent cross infection. .
