Inspection Summary


Overall summary & rating

Good

Updated 13 February 2021

Cooper House is a care home providing nursing and personal care to a maximum of 80 older people and people living with dementia. It is a purpose built home with accommodation on three floors. At the time of our inspection there were 53 people using the service.

We found the following examples of good practice.

The home was clean and well ventilated.

The home closed to all non essential visitors when the national lockdown was imposed. Before the national lockdown the home had been able to offer indoor visiting in a designated indoor space. Safety measures in place to reduce the risk of transmission during these visits included offering COVID-19 testing to relatives using Lateral Flow Tests.

People living in the home and staff had regular COVID-19 tests through the government testing scheme. In addition staff had twice weekly testing using Lateral Flow Tests.

Everyone living at the home had received their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccination. The roll out of vaccinations to staff was still in progress at the time of our inspection.

There was a good supply of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) including aprons, gloves, masks and hand sanitiser. Staff had received training on the correct use of PPE and checks were done to make sure they continued to follow best practice guidelines.
