Updated 27 August 2020

Derwent Lodge is registered to provide nursing and residential care and support for 16 people with mental health needs. At the time of our inspection there were 13 people using the service. The service is a detached, single storey property located within a residential area of Derby. The service provides communal rooms, which include lounges, dining room, activities room and two kitchens. The bedrooms are single occupancy with an en-suite facility. The service has a garden which can be accessed from the communal rooms.

We found the following examples of good practice.

The provider had ensured there was enough supply of personal protective equipment and we saw staff used this appropriately. Cleaning products had been changed to meet the new infection control and steam cleaning was used to further reduce the risks.

Risk assessments had been completed to consider any staff who maybe at higher risk and measures were in place to support them. Staff were supported by regular information and the option of accessing wellbeing support.

People were provided with information in a range of formats which included written and visual.

Activities within the service had been increased and promoted to reduce people’s risk of isolation. These had been received well and for some people this had resulted in a reduction in the reliance of medicine.

Visitors had initially been discouraged and they received written information in relation the Covid 19. However now there is a system in place to enable visiting to be completed in a safe way.

Further information is in the detailed findings below.
