Drayton Village Care Centre is a nursing home and is part of GCH (North London) Limited. It provides accommodation for up to 91 older people in single rooms. The home is situated within a residential area of the London Borough of Hillingdon. At the time of our visit there were 84 people using the service.

We found the following examples of good practice.

Appropriate procedures were in place to reduce the risk of people visiting the home, including relatives and professionals, catching or spreading the infection. These included designated entrance and exit for visitors and staff, all visitors wearing appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and a specific room for visits with a plastic screen which could be cleaned.

Whenever possible social distancing was complied with but where this was not possible for example when providing personal care staff wore appropriate PPE including masks, visors, gloves, aprons as well as sleeve and shoe covers when required.

The provider had a process in place for admissions from hospital which included ensuring the person had a negative Covid 19 test before discharge to the home. All new admissions were isolated for 14 days following admission and included in the home’s Covid 19 testing process.

Processes were in place to ensure PPE was used appropriately by staff including additional training, ongoing monitoring of the use of PPE and hand washing. The provider had adequate stock of PPE. Regular Covid 19 testing was carried out for both people using the service and all staff.

We were assured that this service met good infection prevention and control guidelines as a designated care setting.
