Inspection Summary


Overall summary & rating

Good

Updated 29 August 2020

Elstree Court Care Home is a nursing home that provides personal and nursing care for up to 41 older people. At the time of the inspection there were 34 people living at the service. People were living with a range of needs associated with the frailties of old age and some people were living with dementia.

We found the following examples of good practice.

The registered manager told us that staff had been wearing masks since the start of the pandemic, before it became government guidance. The registered manager felt that this was key in the prevention of COVID-19 in the home.

Staff had guidance to follow should they have an outbreak in the home. The registered manager understood how to zone the home to prevent the spread of infection into areas with people confirmed with COVID-19 and areas without. The registered manager had kept four bedrooms free from admissions in order to use this area of the home for any suspected or confirmed cases of COVID-19.

Risk assessments had been completed for all staff members to determine whether they would be at increased risk of COVID-19. The registered manger had planned that if there was an outbreak at the home, staff who were medium or high risk would only work in areas of the home that were COVID-19 free.
