Overall summary & rating

Good

Updated 23 June 2021

Tolson Grange Care Home provides accommodation and personal care for up to 42 older people. At the time of our inspection, there were 32 people living at the service. We found the following examples of good practice.

Staff wore PPE throughout the building. Designated areas were available for staff to change into their uniform which helped reduce the risk of spreading infection. Staff had received training in infection control and the use of PPE and understood their responsibilities.

A robust system was in place for managing visitors to the home. This included testing for COVID-19 on arrival, wearing appropriate PPE, completing questionnaires, checking temperatures and hand sanitising.

The premises were clean, hygienic and well ventilated. There were regular cleaning regimes in place, including cleaning frequently touched areas such as light switches, door handles and hand rails.

Staff engaged with the government COVID-19 testing scheme for people living in the home and staff. Clear signage was on display on arrival and around the home to make people, visitors and staff aware of their responsibilities related to reducing the risk of spreading infection.

Infection control audits were completed. The registered manager kept up to date guidance and information in accessible formats for staff.

Further information is in the detailed findings below.
