Inspection Summary


Overall summary & rating

Good

Updated 20 February 2021

Bryher Court Nursing Home is a nursing home providing care for up to 45 people. There were 30 people living there at the time of the inspection.

We found the following examples of good practice.

Staff were provided with adequate supplies of personal protective equipment (PPE) and were seen to be wearing this appropriately. At the start of the outbreak staff had started to wear visors in addition to the recommended PPE. They continued to wear these as additional protection.

Staff had received specific Covid-19 training and this included guidance for staff about how to put on and take off PPE safely. They were seen to be following correct infection prevention and control (IPC) practices. Hand sanitiser was readily available throughout the home. Regular testing for people and staff was taking place.

During the outbreak people remained in their bedrooms. Some people did not always like their bedroom doors closed. Therefore, staff repositioned people’s beds as far from the door as possible, but also positioned people so they could see outside of the door and still feel part of the home.

As far as possible staff maintained social distancing from each other. For example, limited numbers of staff in the staff room or on breaks together. Although people were now able to leave their rooms most people had chosen not to. Therefore, social distancing for people who used the lounge was managed with ease. We heard staff engaging with people both in their bedrooms and the lounge throughout our time at the home.
