Inspection Summary


Overall summary & rating

Outstanding

Updated 5 November 2020

We found the following examples of good practice.

The home had designated a fully self-contained and segregated unit as a Covid recovery unit. The unit had separate entrances and exits. The layout of the communal areas allowed residents to eat and drink where they wished to do so, which promoted social distancing and prevented congestion.

The manager allocated teams of staff to specific units at the home to prevent cross-contamination. The provider had given staff uniforms and shoes to wear at work. Staff changed into their uniforms for their shift and donned personal protective equipment (PPE) in a separate staff changing area located in each unit. The provider gave staff laundry bags for dirty clothes and offered them a laundry service.

The home had purchased a high specification video calling system to enhance contact between residents and their relatives. This provided a hands-free video call device with a camera that followed people as they moved around.

A multi-disciplinary clinical handover occurred for each hospital patient prior to discharge to the Covid recovery unit.

The home booked and paid agency staff for all their normal weekly hours to ensure that they did not work in other homes. This gave the home the flexibility to use those staff when they had staff shortages.

Further information is in the detailed findings below.
