Good

Updated 24 April 2021

Fairburn Mews is a purpose built facility offering nursing and residential care for up to 20 people some of whom have physical needs associated with Huntington’s Disease. On the day of the inspection there were 19 people living in the home.

We found the following examples of good practice.

Processes were in place to prevent visitors from catching and spreading infections. In line with government guidance, the home had recently commenced in-home visits. There was a clear pre-booking system and deep cleaning was undertaken between each visit. The home had a dedicated area to be used for these visits. Stocks of personal protective equipment (PPE), such as masks, gloves, aprons, face visors, hand washing facilities and hand sanitising gel were readily available. Temperature tests were done in a secure entrance area, and a COVID-19 questionnaire was completed. Lateral flow testing for COVID-19 was done.

A documented, ongoing testing regime was in place for visitors, staff and people living in the home. There was access and take up of vaccination for staff and people using services. The service had in place a robust admission and discharge process for people.

The layout of the premises promoted safety and reduced the potential for the transmission of infections. We observed the home to be clean, maintained and with a programme of improvements. There was clear signage throughout the home on social distancing rules and robust cleaning arrangements, including frequent deep cleaning, were in place.

We observed staff wore a full range of PPE appropriately and consistently.

Staff training, practices and deployment showed the service could prevent transmission of infection and manage any outbreaks.

Staff supported people's social and emotional wellbeing. Alternative forms of maintaining social contact were in place including, video calls.
