Good

Updated 25 February 2021

Thornton Hill is a care home providing nursing and personal care for up to 52 people. The home is split into three units, two of which support people living with dementia. At the time of the inspection there were 37 people using the service.

We found the following examples of good practice.

Procedures were in place to effectively manage and support essential visits to the home. This included a booking system, testing, health screening questionnaire and access to Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).

Local restrictions on visiting were in place at the time of the inspection and alternative measures such as video calls were being used. The home had also allocated a room to allow safe

visits when national restrictions allowed.

Systems and processes were in place to safely admit people to the home. There was no movement of residents between the units to minimise risk.

The home was very clean and additional cleaning was in place in high traffic and frequently touched areas.

Policies and procedures in place were up to date and reflected the challenges faced as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.
