Sherwood is a residential care home providing personal care for up to six older people. At the time of the inspection, three people were living at the home.

We found the following examples of good practice:

Staff wore appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) in line with the Government guidance, to ensure people were protected as much as possible from the risk of cross infection. PPE was easily accessible in various places around the home. Staff had received training in infection control, COVID-19 and how to put on and take off PPE safely.

The home was clean and records showed that enhanced cleaning was being completed regularly throughout the home.

There were clear processes in place for visitors to the service. They were screened for COVID-19 symptoms on arrival and were required to wear appropriate PPE and maintain social distancing during their visit. The

provider was facilitating visits in line with the Government guidance and understood how important this was to people living at the home and their families.

Staff and people living at the home were being tested regularly, to ensure that appropriate action could be taken if anyone contracted the COVID-19 virus.
