Inspection Summary


Overall summary & rating

Good

Updated 26 November 2020

The Airedale Nursing Home is a care home providing personal and nursing care to 41 people on the day of our visit. The service can support up to 57 people in a building made up of two units across three floors. One wing has been adapted and one wing is purpose built.

We found the following examples of good practice.

There were several areas in the garden where people could have socially distanced visits with their relatives by appointment. A room was being turned into an area where people’s visitors could have socially distanced visits in-doors during the winter months. People’s visitors would not walk through the service and had a separate entrance and exit and parking area.

People, when needed were asked to self-isolate within their room or within certain zoned off areas of the service. The ground floor currently had an area of three separate isolation rooms, separated by a door, from the rest of the building.

Staff were not allowed to travel to and from work in their uniforms.

There were policies and procedures in place around infection prevention and control. These included a COVID-19 action plan and the completion of an NHS Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) Assurance Framework for Care Homes.

There were two IPC leads at the service to support staff.

An extensive IPC audit had been completed at the service to monitor the quality of service and that up to date guidance and legislation was being followed by staff.

Further information is in the detailed findings below.
