Overview

Inspection carried out on 18 September 2012

During an inspection to make sure that the improvements required had been made

Although we did not speak to any person about this standard, we found that they had access to improved hand washing and drying facilities in their bedrooms and communal toilet and bathing facilities.

We found that that remedial action was taken to minimise people's health risks associated with acquired infections. This included improved cleaning systems of bathing equipment and the removal of communal creams and toiletries.

There were some improvements in staff training and instruction regarding cleaning products and management, and control of infection. However, more formal infection control training had not been made available. This is an area where improvements could be made to ensure that staff had up-to-date knowledge to provide people with continued safe and appropriate care.

The infection control policy remained out-of-date and was not revised by the timescale set by the provider for completion. We were advised that this delay was due to other priorities that had taken place. The manager advised us that the revised infection control policy would be made available by 21 September 2012.
