About the Service.

The Red House is a 'care home' which can accommodate up to seven people with a learning disability. At the time of our inspection visit there were four people using the service.

People's experience of using this service and what we found.

The service was following its maintenance and repair plan to ensure people were living in a safe and suitable environment.

We were assured the service was following safe infection prevention and control procedures to keep people safe.

We found several examples of good infection control practices. These included; Regular testing for people using the service and staff. The service was proactive in arranging extra testing for staff where it was felt they may have been at risk of infection. Regular audits ensured the service was prepared to continue to meet the challenges of the pandemic and regular cleaning was in place to help to prevent the spread of infection.

Why we inspected

We undertook this targeted inspection to check on a specific concern we had about the maintenance of the care home environment. The overall rating for the service has not changed following this targeted inspection and remains Good.

CQC have introduced targeted inspections to follow up on Warning Notices or to check specific concerns. They do not look at an entire key question, only the part of the key question we are specifically concerned about. Targeted inspections do not change the rating from the previous inspection. This is because they do not assess all areas of a key question.

We found no evidence during this inspection that people were at risk of harm from this concern.

We looked at infection prevention and control measures under the Safe key question. We look at this in all care home inspections even if no concerns or risks have been identified. This is to provide assurance that the

service can respond to coronavirus and other infection outbreaks effectively.

Follow up
