Pemdale is a ‘care home’ providing accommodation and personal care to a maximum of six people who have a range of learning disabilities. There were six people living at the home when we inspected.

We found the following examples of good practice.

¿ The home was clean. Cleaning schedules showed key areas were cleaned regularly and on a daily basis.

¿ Staff, professionals, and when necessary maintance persons were supervised to enter the home in a safe way. Staff promoted good social distancing practices.

¿ There were plans in place to manage an outbreak or if a person developed COVID-19 symptoms to isolate people and cohort staff.

¿ We observed staff wearing personal protective equipment (PPE) and washing their hands correctly. Staff received training and refresher training in relation to PPE. People had been supported (where possible) to understand the importance of staff wearing this equipment.

¿ The manager was monitoring key aspects of infection protection control (IPC) such as PPE stock levels to promote people’s safety.
