Oldfield Manor is a residential care home for up to 17 older people who require support with personal care. Accommodation is provided over two floors in an adapted building. The home offers 15 single bedrooms and one double room, and five rooms have en-suite facilities. A passenger lift is available to support people with mobility between the floors.

At the time of our visit 16 people were living at the home.

We found the following examples of good practice.

The home had comprehensive policies and procedures to manage any risks associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. This included an operational plan in the event of an outbreak in the home of this viral infection. The policies, procedures and risk assessments were updated regularly following any changes in national guidance.

People living in the home and their next of kin were supported to maintain contact through a range of methods including visit appointments in a ‘pod’ or ‘booth’, skype video and the telephone.

The home management team were reviewing best practice guidance to ensure safe visiting arrangements for people in the home from next month in accordance with recent government announcements.

There was an ample supply of PPE for staff and any visitors to use. Hand sanitiser was stored securely but available to staff throughout the home. Staff had received training on the use of PPE and we observed staff wearing it correctly during our inspection. Clear signage and information was in place throughout the home to remind staff of their responsibilities.

The home employed two housekeepers and daily cleaning schedules were undertaken and these were enhanced with additional touch point cleaning.

A programme of regular COVID-19 testing for both people in the home and staff was implemented. Screening procedures were also in place for visitors to the home.

The home was participating in the COVID-19 vaccination programme.
