Inspection Summary


Overall summary & rating

Good

Updated 22 December 2020

The Brain Injury Rehabilitation Trust – Bristol Road is a rehabilitation service for up to eight people who have an acquired brain injury. At the time of inspection, the service was providing accommodation and personal care to seven people.

We found the following examples of good practice.

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) stations where staff could sanitise their hands, put on and take off the appropriate PPE were placed throughout the building in key areas. Staff wore gloves, masks and aprons as a minimum during the outbreak and also wore visors when supporting people who had tested positive for COVID-19.

The home was not currently allowing visitors because of the outbreak of COVID-19 in the home. Prior to the outbreak visits were supported in the garden where social distancing and PPE were required.

Staff took the time to support people to understand why staff were wearing PPE and why they had to isolate. People had adapted to the restrictions well and were supported to maintain contact with families through phone and video calls.

Staff received additional Infection control training and PPE training remotely. The training materials were also sent to each staff member for reference should they need it.

The provider responded swiftly when people tested positive for COVID-19 and supported them to isolate immediately and ensure all areas of the home were sanitised and disinfected through a deep clean.

The provider has established a COVID-19 response team that supports all staff members in their employment during the pandemic with any concerns or requirements they may have. The provider also utilises an employee assistance helpline for staff to use should they require.
