Inspection Summary


Overall summary & rating

Good

Updated 18 February 2021

Keate House is a fully converted Care home property, located a short walk from the centre of Lymm village. It is registered to provide accommodation for 54 people including people with dementia. At the time of this inspection there were 45 people in the home.

• Visitors were able to spend time seeing and speaking with loved ones in various ways. There was a visitor’s pod outside the home so they did not need to enter the building. Where visiting was not possible, other means of communication had been created including video viewing on the big screen.

• The building had been adapted to ensure good practices of infection prevention and control were maintained. A treatment room had been created at the front of the house so that visiting professionals did not need to enter the living area. A second staff room had been created to improve social distancing and a ‘don and doff’ room had been set up for staff. People who required isolating were supported in a designated room and area of the home with an allocated team of staff. A virtual ward round took place every week.

• COVID-19 testing was undertaken 3 times weekly for staff and monthly for residents who were able and willing. At the time of the inspection all residents and care staff who had consented had received their first vaccination.

• Stocks of the right standard of personal protective equipment (PPE) were well-maintained and staff used and disposed of it correctly. Staff had been trained in infection control practices and a dedicated member of staff had been seconded into a new role of COVID Marshal.
