Overall summary & rating

Good

Updated 18 November 2020

Mayfield Care Home is a residential care home registered to provide personal care and support for up to 24 people, some of whom are living with a diagnosis of dementia. On the day of the inspection there were 22 people living at the home.

We found the following examples of good practice.

Staff reduced the risk of visiting professionals spreading infection. All visitors had their temperatures taken and completed a questionnaire prior to entry.

People were supported to keep in contact with their family and friends through the use of technology. Staff supported people to make video calls.

There was clear signage around the home encouraging the use of personal protective equipment (PPE) and good hand hygiene.

The layout of the lounge area had been changed to support social distancing.

The registered manager completed daily audits of staff putting on and taking off (donning and doffing) their PPE and handwashing.

Staff supported people to take part in activities. During the inspection we observed people had decorated gingerbread for Halloween and had made decorations.

Further information is in the detailed findings below.
