Inspection Summary


Overall summary & rating

Good

Updated 30 March 2021

The service provides personal and nursing care for up to 80 older people.

We found the following examples of good practice.

¿ Information was easily accessible on arrival or before visits to ensure visitors followed guidance, procedures or protocols to ensure compliance with infection prevention control.

¿ Staff wore appropriate personal protective equipment including a mask, gloves and apron when delivering personal care to all people.

¿ There were designated areas for donning/doffing personal protective equipment (PPE).

¿ Safe arrangements were in place to enable staff to appropriately socially distance during breaks.

¿ The service followed national guidelines regarding testing of people before admission to the service. All staff and residents were also regularly tested as part of ‘whole home testing’.

¿ People were assessed daily for the development of a high temperature (37.8°C or above), a cough, as well as for softer signs that might indicate the presence of infection.

¿ All areas of the service were uncluttered to ensure cleaning could take place effectively.

¿ Any staff in high risk groups such as black and minority ethnic (BAME) staff had been risk assessed, and adjustments had been made.

¿ Staff were trained and knew how to immediately instigate full infection control measures to care for people with symptoms to avoid the virus spreading across the home.

¿ People and staff knew how to raise any concerns or complaints around IPC practice if they thought it was unsafe, or not effective, without fear or discrimination.
