Inspection Summary


Overall summary & rating

Good

Updated 24 September 2020

Darlington Court is a nursing home providing residential and nursing care to 43 people with a range of health needs, including people living with dementia, at the time of the inspection. The home can support up to 56 people.

We found the following examples of good practice.

Visiting was by arrangement and people were required to complete a health checklist and were told about the infection precautions required for visiting the home on arrival. There was clear signage in corridors and communal areas to remind people about social distancing.

A virtual tour of the home was made available to people and family members ahead of admission.

Seating in communal areas supported social activities whilst managing distances safely
