About the service

Rosedale Nursing Home is registered to provide accommodation for persons who require nursing and/or personal care. It is divided into three units; a general nursing unit; a unit for people living with dementia who require residential care and a unit for people living with dementia who require nursing care. The home is registered to accommodate up to 68 people across three separate units. The residential unit was empty at the time of our inspection and to be used as the designated care setting for 13 people.

We found the following examples of good practice.

¿ The systems in place allowed people to be admitted to the home safely. The unit was a separate building with its own entrance and exit which allowed direct access for staff and ambulance admissions. This reduced the risk of cross infection. There was no movement of staff or residents between units.

¿ People who would be isolating at the unit had their own dedicated staff to meet all of their support needs.

¿ National guidance was followed on the use of personal protective equipment (PPE). There was clear signage on the correct use of PPE and handwashing techniques and staff had received appropriate infection control and prevention training.

¿ All non-essential visits into the home had been suspended at the time of the inspection so alternative measures such as video calls were planned to be used to maintain contact with family members.

¿ The environment was very clean. Additional cleaning was scheduled to take place of frequently touched surfaces such as light switches and door handles.

¿ There were detailed risk assessments to manage and minimise the risks Covid-19 presented to people who used the service, staff and visitors.

¿ Staff had been consulted with about their specific risks or concerns and the provider was taking all possible steps to keep them and people using the service safe.

We were assured that this service met good infection prevention and control guidelines as a designated care setting.
