Inspection Summary


Overall summary & rating

Good

Updated 3 December 2020

Moorfield Care Home is situated in a residential area close to Bury town centre. The home is registered to provide accommodation and personal care for up to 20 people, some of whom live with dementia. Accommodation is provided over two floors with access via a passenger lift. There are 16 single bedrooms and two shared rooms. At the time of the inspection there were 10 people living at the home.

We found the following examples of good practice.

¿ The provider was participating in the home testing programme for people living at the home and staff.

¿ All people entering the building had their temperature checked, sanitised their hands and donned appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) before entering the home. We discussed the pathway for entering and exiting the property so the risk of cross infection was minimised.

¿ Regular cleaning schedules were in place to ensure all areas were effectively cleaned and reduced the risk of cross infection. Additional advice was sought in relation to the safe disposal of waste due to the outbreak.

¿ Sufficient supplies of PPE were readily available. Staff were observed wearing appropriate PPE. Staff received guidance and regular training in infection prevention and control measures and the appropriate use of PPE.

¿ At the time of the inspection the service was not receiving visitors. Alternative arrangements had been made to help people maintain contact with friends and family. These included, using electronic devices, telephone calls and letters. A social media page was also being developed so that photographs and events could be shared, where people had consented.

¿ To help maintain people’s well-being staff encouraged people to socialise with each other and join activities whilst maintaining social distancing.

¿ Due to staff isolating alternative cover arrangements had been made utilising staff from another home registered by the provider. Staff did not work across both services during this time.

¿ The service worked in partnership with other agencies and health professionals, to ensure people's needs were effectively met.
