Updated 24 March 2021

Mandeville Grange Nursing Home is a care home located on the outskirts of Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire and is owned by Mandeville Care Services Limited. The original building is a traditional Victorian house, over the years it has been added to and now provides care and support for up to 31 people. At the time of our inspection 29 people were living at the home

We found the following examples of good practice.

People were supported to keep in touch with their families throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. This included individual visitor plans as part of their care plan to make sure their social contact needs are met. These plans and supporting policies had recently been amended to reflect the change in care home visitor guidance. There was a booking system in place to stagger visitors and visit times to minimise visitor numbers. Prior to each visit, visitors completed a lateral flow test and had the visitor expectations and procedures clearly explained.

The service was receiving professional visitors, with robust infection control procedures in place. Visitors entered via a buzzer system, were received into a separate area on arrival where they were provided with guidance, personal protective equipment (PPE) and health screening was completed. Each visitor also had their temperature checked by staff on arrival.

There were sufficient supplies of PPE including masks, gloves, aprons and hand sanitiser. Staff had received training in infection prevention and control, PPE including donning and doffing and hand hygiene. PPE was disposed of safely in clinical waste bins which helped reduce the risk of cross contamination.

A regular programme of testing for COVID-19 was in place for staff and people who lived in the service. This meant swift action could be taken if any positive results were received.

Staff told us the provider and registered manager had been and continued to be supportive of staff, and risk assessments had been completed with staff who identified as facing higher risks. The registered manager was positive about the commitment staff had shown throughout the pandemic and welcome received as they had joined the home a week prior to the pandemic. Staff were regularly tested for COVID-19 and had received COVID-19 vaccinations in January 2021.
