Inspection Summary


Overall summary & rating

Good

Updated 3 October 2020

At the time of inspection, Rix House is registered to provide accommodation for people with learning disabilities or autistic spectrum disorder. It is a purpose built building with single rooms which have suitable adaptations to meet the needs of the people living in the home. Rix House is registered to care for 20 people and at the time of our inspection 13 people lived at the home.

We found the following examples of good practice.

• The home was in a local lockdown and was closed to visitors. Prior to this, the home had amended changes to how visits took place to minimise the risk of the spread of infection. This was meeting in the community or in the enclosed garden.

• Staff at the home have ensured people using the service maintain contact with relatives. This is organised through video calls on mobile devices.

• To ensure the safety of the people living at the home, there are no respite stays taking place. This is to minimise the risk of infection transmission.

• Staff were trained in how to keep people safe and use personal protective equipment (PPE) correctly. Through observations during the inspection and during conversations with staff, it was evident that staff were aware of the responsibilities to manage infection prevention and control.

Further information is in the detailed findings below.
