Inspection Summary


Overall summary & rating

Good

Updated 22 September 2020

Sunnyside Nursing Home is a residential nursing home in Leeds. The home provides accommodation, personal care and nursing care for older people and people living with dementia. At the time of our inspection there were 25 people using the service.

We found the following examples of good practice.

• Visitors had to sign a COVID-19 risk assessment and declaration before entering the building, and on entry were provided with PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) and had their temperature taken.

• The home had implemented a zoning system due to the nature of the service. ‘Zones’ (which were created as part of the providers infection control systems and identified which residents were isolating or required further shielding) were clearly marked with guidance on each person's door around what PPE to be used for that person. Each zone had its own PPE donning and doffing area.

• Staff were allocated to zones based on risks to their health and wellbeing. Staff's protected characteristics were considered as additional risk factors and reflected in how staff were deployed.

• Staff had been provided with training around how viruses work, in addition to internal and external infection prevention and control training.

• Additional cleaning hours had been provided in response to COVID-19 and staff had been provided with ozone and fogging machines to support additional cleaning processes.

• Staff had been provided with additional uniforms to enable uniforms to be changed and laundered after each shift
