Updated 9 February 2021

Villa Maria is a residential care home which provides personal care to 27 people over 65. The service can support up to 34 people.

We found the following examples of good practice.

¿ Staff had received training in infection control and how to use personal protective equipment (PPE) effectively. Staff changed into their uniforms when arriving at the service and had the option to have uniforms washed at the correct temperature at the service.

¿ People and staff had regular tests for COVID. Lateral flow tests (which give a result in 30 minutes) were used for anyone who entered the service including staff for each shift they worked.

¿ The service was clean and additional cleaning had been added to the cleaning schedule including disinfecting door handles and all areas after use by people or staff. Furniture had been moved to promote social distancing including reducing the number of people at each dining table for meals.
