Inspection Summary


Overall summary & rating

Good

Updated 9 December 2020

Overdene is a ‘care home’. People in care homes receive accommodation and nursing or personal care as a single package under one contractual agreement. The Care Quality Commission (CQC) regulates both the premises and the care provided, and both were looked at during this inspection. The home accommodates up to 70 people and 48 people were living at the home at the time of our inspection.

We found the following examples of good practice.

Systems were in place to screen visitors for symptoms of Covid-19. Face to face visits between families and people had assessed as not safe at the time of our visit and as a result alternative measures such as people keeping in touch through video and phone calls.

Appropriate measures were in place to identify those who had Covid-19 and to support their physical and emotional needs appropriately. Measures within the environment reduced the risk of those who did not have Covid-19 from becoming infected.

People told us that despite the restrictions they faced at the moment; they felt safe and happy with the support they received from the staff team.

Staff wore appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) and confirmed they had access to adequate supplies.

People living at the service and staff members had access to regular Covid-19 testing.

The registered manager had ensured staff were deployed to work in designated parts of the home. This helped to protect people from the risk of infection.

Overdene House had appointed infection control leads. Their role was to undertake daily health checks on staff and to share any changes in local or national guidance with their colleagues. One infection control lead gave us an account of how practice had changed to reduce the risk of further infection.

Further information is in the detailed findings below.
