Updated 30 March 2021

Woodview House Nursing Home is registered to provide accommodation and nursing care to a maximum of 24 older people. People lived with dementia. At the time of our inspection 19 people lived at the home.

We found the following examples of good practice.

¿Rules applied when visitors and external health and social care professionals entered the premises. These included having their temperature taken and wearing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).

¿ Zoning minimised the number of staff and people in any one area to avoid the risk of infection transmission.

¿ People were admitted safely to the home in line with current guidance.

¿ Staff were observed wearing PPE in line with Government guidance. Signage within the home reminded staff to maintain good infection control practices. Staff compliance with infection prevention and control procedures was monitored through supervision and observed practice.

¿ COVID-19 test kits were readily available. Tests were carried out three times weekly as a minimum for staff and every 28 days for people. Testing could identify at an early stage an incidence of COVID-19 infection so that action could be taken to prevent further transmission.

¿ The premises offered single bedrooms and a choice of communal areas promoting social distancing and easy self-isolation if the need arose.

¿ The majority of staff had received Infection and Prevention Control (IPC) procedures training which included donning and doffing of PPE and PPE usage.

¿ The provider's IPC policy had been reviewed regularly.
