People living at the home had individual visitor plans to make sure their social contact needs were met. Personalised photo cards with messages were sent to friends and relatives to help support wellbeing.

The provider utilised technology to maintain management oversight of COVID-19 test results and the vaccination status for staff and people living in the home. Information was uploaded on to a digital platform and risk rated to enable ongoing monitoring.

There was frequent cleaning of touch points and high traffic areas. Laminated signs displayed indicated when areas were last cleaned to provide assurance of a regular cleaning regime.

Staff compliance with infection prevention and control procedures was monitored through a process of competency assessments. This included observed practice and utilising technology such as an UV light device to monitor hand hygiene.

Staff wellbeing was promoted; individual meetings provided the opportunity to discuss concerns. External support was made available to staff who may benefit from it.
