Inspection Summary


Overall summary & rating

Requires improvement

Updated 1 April 2021

Beechcroft Residential Home provides accommodation and personal care for up to 50 older people, including people living with dementia. At the time of our inspection there were 27 people using the service.

We found the following examples of good practice.

A visiting pod could be accessed by loved ones without entering the home. There was a booking system available and cleaning took place between uses. This meant people could enjoy visits in a safe and comfortable environment.

Staff wore Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) in line with guidance. PPE stations and clinical waste bins were available throughout the home.

Clear signage was displayed throughout the home to prompt with handwashing and correct PPE use.

Carpeted flooring in corridors was being replaced with hard floors. This allowed more frequent cleaning and supported to control the spread of infection.

Staff we spoke to were knowledgeable about infection control practices and felt they would be supported by the manager if they raised any concerns.
