Updated 13 February 2021

Brooklyn House is registered to provide accommodation and personal care for up to 17 older people, who may also be living with dementia, in one adapted building. At the time of our inspection, 10 people were living in the service.

We found the following examples of good practice.

The service was working closely with the Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) infection control team to ensure their infection control practice was safe. Staff had been trained in the wearing of personal protective equipment (PPE) and PPE made readily available throughout the service.

People and staff were accessing regular testing for COVID-19, and results were acted on.

Visiting arrangements were in place to support people receiving end of life care, whilst minimising the risk of infection being brought into the service.

Systems were in place to support people needing to self-isolate. The service was not taking new admissions at the time of our visit. The registered manager confirmed they would be following government guidance regarding any new admissions, including isolating people in their bedroom for the first 14 days.

The provider and staff were committed to taking a lessons learnt from their experience during the pandemic, to drive continuous improvement.
