Richmond Village Aston On Trent Care Home is a residential care home providing personal and nursing care to up to 61 people. At the time of our inspection there were 34 people living at the home. Accommodation is provided over the first floor and second floor with communal lounges and dining areas.

We found the following examples of good practice

• Safe staffing levels were maintained at the service. All staff had completed training in relation to infection prevention and control (IPC) and correct use of personal protective equipment (PPE), including donning and doffing. Regular refresher training sessions were held with the in-house trainer who also completed regular competency checks.

• Robust systems were in place to ensure safe visiting, including checking vaccination status of professionals attending the service and a comprehensive orientation for all visitors to ensure they were familiar with the service's IPC procedures.

• Cleaning schedules were in place and frequently audited to ensure the equipment and premises were clean, and on each floor dedicated cleaning staff were deployed. High touch areas were cleaned at least 4 times every 24 hours with appropriate cleaning products.

• Policies, procedures and risk assessments in relation to COVID-19 were up to date and reviewed regularly. People had individualised care plans and risk assessments detailing their choices about receiving visitors and going out during the pandemic.
