Inspection Summary


Overall summary & rating

Good

Updated 2 February 2021

We found the following examples of good practice.

The procedures for essential visitors were clearly explained on entering the premises, handwashing facilities were available and a screening form had to be completed prior to being admitted.

The home had purchased a visitors’ pod which meant people could visit their loved ones in a safe and secure environment. An extra staff member was on duty when people were visiting to help ensure safety.

Staff took separate breaks and had signed a no car share policy to help minimize the risk of spreading any infection. Staff had also signed an agreement not to work elsewhere in order to minimize the risk of contact with infection.

Staff were paid for their time when attending the home for testing.

A clear contingency plan was in place in the event of an outbreak and the need for some people who used the service to isolate. Part of the home had been re-purposed and could be used as a separate lounge in the event of an outbreak.

Further information is in the detailed findings below.
