About the service

Cleggsworth care home is a residential care home providing personal care for up to 38 people aged 65 and over in one adapted building. There were 26 people accommodated at the home at the time of the inspection.

We found the following examples of good practice.

• Visitors risk assessments and temperatures were undertaken prior to entry.

• National guidance around coronavirus had been implemented. Personal protective equipment (PPE) was used effectively to safeguard staff and people using the service. We observed signage on donning and doffing PPE effectively and observed a staff member demonstrating this. Staff received specific training on infection control and how to keep people safe from the risk of infection.

• Although local restrictions were in place at the time of the inspection, alternative measures such as video calls and phone calls were utilised to update and maintain contact with family and friends.

• The provider complied with shielding and social distancing rules and people were admitted to the service safely.

• We observed the home looked very clean. We spoke with the domestic staff and viewed cleaning schedules and infection control audits.

• Infection control policies and procedures were in place and the service had invested in air purifying systems which were located in all bedrooms and the communal lounges.
