Inspection Summary


Overall summary & rating

Good

Updated 20 November 2020

Fulford Care & Nursing Home is registered to provide nursing and residential care for up to 74 people with a range of care needs, including frailty of old age, specific health conditions and people living in the early stages of dementia. At the time of the inspection there were 59 residents accommodated in the home.

We found the following examples of good practice.

The registered manager had a pre booking system for visitors and was able to facilitate three visits for different people each day. This spacing allowed the visiting room to be effectively cleaned between visits.

The registered manager had recruited additional housekeeping staff to support an increase in cleaning schedules and purchased a fogging machine to enable quick sanitising of rooms and bathrooms between use. The provider had purchased three additional uniforms for staff to ensure they had a clean uniform to wear every shift.

The registered manager had purchased two tablet devices for people to use and invested in technology to improve connectivity within the home. This meant that residents could use their personal devices to contact relatives wherever they were around the home.

Staff were using an electronic care management system to minimise use of paper records. The system was also used to provide staff with policy updates and changes in practice in a timely way.

Further information is in the detailed findings below.
