Our judgement

People that use the service were protected from the risks of infection in the home.

Overall, we found that Tusker House was meeting this essential standard.

User experience

We did not speak with people using the service about this outcome at this inspection.

Other evidence

At our last visit not all the staff knew how to deal with urine spills on the carpet. Since then a new procedure had been written for staff to follow. We asked several staff members if they knew what the procedure was and they were able to describe this to us. The home looked clean and hygienic during our visit and there were no offensive odours in any areas.
