A S Care is a residential care home, providing nursing or personal care to up to 25 people. At the time of the inspection 19 people were living at the service.

We found the following examples of good practice.

¿The service was clean. Regular and thorough cleaning took place throughout the service including touchpoint areas.

¿Procedures were in place to facilitate contact between people and their families. At the time of inspection, the service had people isolating with COVID-19, and therefore were not allowing routine visiting. Prior to this, people had been able to safely visit relatives.

¿Processes in place for any visitors were clear, and included a temperature check, hand sanitizing station, and appropriate PPE offered for use.

¿Suitable arrangements were in place to ensure that anyone moving in to the service, did so safely. This included a negative Covid 19 test before moving in, and isolating within the service.

¿Staff had access to sufficient supplies of personal protective equipment (PPE) including masks, gloves, aprons and hand sanitiser. The registered manager had been proactive in ensuring stock levels remained good for the staff. We observed staff using PPE correctly throughout the service.

¿Staff followed guidelines with the donning and doffing of PPE, and had an area within the service where this could be done safely.

¿Regular testing was completed for staff and people living at the service. This meant prompt action could be taken should anyone test positive for COVID-19.

¿Regular checks and audits around infection control were completed to ensure the registered manager had oversight on the service, and could address any issues promptly if found.
