Overall summary & rating

Requires improvement

Updated 25 December 2020

Eaton Lodge Nursing Home is a care home providing accommodation with nursing and personal care for up to 24 people. People living at the service had a range of needs including living with dementia and / or long-term health conditions. At the time of the inspection 19 people were living at the service.

We found the following examples of good practice.

People had been given information to help them understand the changes that had been made due to the pandemic. Changes included staff wearing personal protective equipment (PPE), such as masks, aprons and gloves and the importance of social distancing and isolating in their rooms when necessary.

The service was clean and extra cleaning duties were being carried out such as regular deep cleaning and cleaning of areas that were often touched. Such as door handles, stair rails and light switches.

We observed staff using PPE appropriately. Fully equipped PPE ‘stations’ had been distributed around the service to ensure PPE was available to staff when needed.

The provider and registered manager were following advice and guidance from other agencies about infection control and prevention and had updated staff training and practice accordingly.

Further information is in the detailed findings below.
