Good

Updated 20 May 2021

Crownwise Limited - Streatham Common South is a 'care home' registered for up to six people with mental health needs. People in care homes receive accommodation and nursing or personal care as single package under one contractual agreement. CQC regulates both the premises and the care provided, and both were looked at during this inspection.

At the time of inspection there were four people living at the service which is located on the ground and basement floors of a detached house.

We found the following examples of good practice.

The provider had appropriate arrangements in place to reduce the risk of infection. A safe visiting procedure was in place. People were tested for COVID-19 before their admission and after their arrival to reduce risk of infection. People who use the service and staff and residents were tested regularly for COVID-19. The home was clean and hygienic throughout. Staff followed enhanced cleaning schedules to ensure specific areas identified as high risk of transmission of the virus, such as light switches and other touch points, were cleaned several times per day. There was enough Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) available at the home. We observed staff using and disposing of PPE safely and in line with national guidance. Staff had received appropriate infection prevention and control training to manage Covid-19. This included donning and doffing (putting on and taking off) of PPE. Staff worked closely with people who use the service to understand the impact of Covid-19 and how to keep themselves safe. The registered manager told us they received good support from the provider organisation, the local authority and the Clinical Commissioning Group. Staff told us they had received emotional and practical support to assist them through the difficulties of the COVID-19 outbreak. The home’s infection prevention and control policy and risk assessments had been updated relating to COVID-19. The provider had assessed and mitigated infection risks to staff working at the care home, including staff in high risk groups.
