Mountfitchet House provides accommodation with personal and nursing care for up to 60 older people including people living with dementia. Care is provided in four separate units, across two floors.

We found the following examples of good practice.

The provider had assigned one member of staff the role of infection prevention and control champion for the service. The member of staff told us they were responsible for completing infection prevention and control audits, monitoring Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) stock levels and ensuring up to date guidance and information was available to all staff.

There was clear signage at the entrance to the service and throughout the building alerting staff and visitors to the outbreak and providing relevant infection prevention and control information.

The provider had increased the frequency of cleaning throughout the service, with particular emphasis on high touch areas such as door handles and light switches

A free standing visitor’s pod was being built in the grounds of the service to provide a separate space for people to safely meet with their relatives in the future.
