Inspection Summary


Overall summary & rating

Good

Updated 7 April 2021

The Links is registered to provide accommodation and personal care to a maximum of five younger adults. People may live with a mental health diagnosis or a learning disability. At the time of our inspection four people lived at the home.

We found the following examples of good practice.

¿ Procedures were in place for safe visits by healthcare professionals, contractors and relatives. These included the wearing of full Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).

¿ Relatives could visit their family member on an appointment only basis. The provider had deemed the conservatory as safe for this purpose as it was spacious and airy.

¿ The premises were spacious, and all bedrooms were single occupancy. This promoted social distancing and reduced any risk of infection transmission within the home.

¿ Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) processes had been followed when new people were admitted to the home.

¿ Staff took a COVID-19 test three times a week and people every 28 days. People or staff who tested positive were required to self- isolate in line with current government guidance.

¿ The premises were clean and appropriate cleaning products were used.
