Good

Updated 21 November 2020

Yad Voezer 2 is a residential care home providing accommodation with personal care to up to a maximum of eight people with learning disability or autistic spectrum disorder. At the time of our inspection there were five women living at the service. There had been no new placements since the start of the Covid19 pandemic in March 2020. Apart from the registered manager, all staff are female.

We found the following examples of good practice.

We were somewhat assured that this service met good infection prevention and control guidelines as a designated care setting.

¿ The service had access to Covid-19 testing kits and carried out regular testing of all staff and people using the service, including agency staff members.

¿ Agency staff were regularly used by the service and given permanent shifts to ensure they did not work at other services thus reducing the risk of the spread of Covid19.

¿ Daily Infection prevention and control (IPC) audits were carried out by the manager to ensure staff maintained good IPC practices. Cleaning schedules were monitored to ensure surfaces and designated areas were clean.

¿ Designated hand washing facilities were available at the service.

¿ The layout of the building and space enabled people to follow social distancing guidelines, we observed staff complying with these guidelines during our visit.

¿ The service used various methods of communication when discussing Coronavirus with people living at the service. This included, using objects of reference, such as showing people a mask to explain why they needed to wear them when they went out in the community and staff sang to encourage people to wash their hands using good hand washing techniques.

Further information is in the detailed findings below.
