Updated 28 January 2021

Rose Lodge is a residential care home for older people who require nursing and/or personal care. At the time of the inspection, 51 people were living there.

We found the following examples of good practice.

The service was not allowing visitors during the outbreak only receiving essential visitors at the time of our inspection. Any people entering the building were asked to wash their hands and their temperatures were checked. Visitors were asked to take a COVID-19 test and wait a short time in the car park for the result. People were provided with appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE).

People were supported by staff in full PPE, whether that person was COVID-19 positive or negative. This is called barrier nursing. This is to protect both staff and people living in the service. People who were positive had appropriate signs on their doors and staff appropriately changed and disposed of their PPE as required for good infection control.

Staff commencing their shift used the same entrance. They were required to have a temperature check and had hand washing facilities. All staff groups had different changing areas and dining areas to maintain infection control. Staff took their breaks individually. This meant that the provider was following good practice for infection control.

There were areas within the home for donning and doffing (this is where staff put on and take off their PPE) There were good guidance notices on display through out the home about how to wash your hands and maintain good infection control. Staff and residents were regularly tested for COVID-19.

The building was clean and free from clutter. Staff wore their PPE appropriately and were seen to maintain good hand washing and sanitising.

There were cleaning schedules in place to ensure infection control management. Extra staffing hours had been added to these schedules to assist with infection control management.
