Updated 8 January 2021

Carr Gate is registered to provide accommodation, nursing and personal care for up to 65 people, some of whom are living with dementia. The home is on two floors and there are three units; Cherry (nursing care), Cliffe (residential care) and Holly (dementia care). At the time of this inspection 43 people were living in the home.

We found the following examples of good practice.

The service was accessing the government testing scheme which assisted them to promptly identify an outbreak. The service worked with the local authority infection, prevention and control (IPC) team and other health professionals in managing the outbreak.

There was clear and accessible infection prevention signage throughout the home and clear communication with staff reinforced hygiene practices. There was a plentiful supply of personal protective equipment (PPE), such as disposable masks, gloves and aprons. There were PPE stations and hand sanitising points appropriately placed around the home.

People isolating in their rooms had regular contact with staff, who wore personal protective equipment (PPE) appropriately. Staff also helped people to maintain links with their family and friends by phone and on-line.
