How this check was done

Our judgement

People living at 199 Doseley Road are protected by the home's proactive approach to ensuring all areas are clean and opportunities for cross infection are minimised.

User experience

People who spoke with us about the home said that it is currently very clean and well maintained. Relatives told us, “The home has been redecorated, deep cleaned and new furnishings purchased”. They also said, “Cleanliness was an issue in the past and this has now been resolved”.

Other people who have visited the home commented that it is now a much cleaner and nicer place to be. On the day of our visit, all areas were seen to be clean. Staff said that they have gloves and aprons to use while cleaning and hand gel was seen readily available throughout the home and was seen to be used by staff before administering medication.

Other evidence

The manager said that the home scored 81% in a recent infection control audit carried out by the organisation suggesting arrangements in place are satisfactory and that the home has a way of monitoring to ensure standards are maintained.
