Inspection Summary


Overall summary & rating

Outstanding

Updated 27 February 2021

Villa Scalabrini is a purpose built ‘care home’ providing accommodation and personal care to a maximum of 53 people. At the time of our inspection, 43 people were living at the service.

We found the following examples of good practice.

¿ The service was receiving professional visitors with infection control procedures in place. Visitors were screened and had their temperatures checked by staff on arrival. Alcohol gel was made available and all visitors were required to wear personal protective equipment (PPE).

¿ The service had adapted an office space into a visiting room for people and their relatives. The room had been partitioned with a large window in place, along with an intercom, where visitors can enter the room via an external door without access to any other areas of the service. At the time of our inspection, visits had been temporarily suspended due to an outbreak of COVID-19 at the service. The registered manager told us that once visits are resumed they will be limited and by appointment only, with times allocated to avoid potential infection transmission with other visitors.

¿ People and staff had engaged with the routine testing scheme. Where people received a positive test result for COVID-19, they were supported to isolate in their bedrooms for a period of 14 days. Staff were allocated to solely work on one of the units within the service.

¿ Risks to people and staff in relation to their health, safety and wellbeing had been assessed.
