Inspection Summary


Overall summary & rating

Good

Updated 15 April 2021

Mostyn Lodge Residential Home is a residential care home and was providing personal care to eight people aged 65 and over at the time of the inspection. The service can support up to 16 people.

Mostyn Lodge Residential Home is a converted former domestic property providing accommodation across two floors. On the ground floor there are two lounges, the dining area, kitchen and bedrooms. A conservatory provides level access to the garden. The first floor is accessible by stairs and a chairlift, where there are further bedrooms. Communal bath, shower and toilet facilitates are available on both the ground and first floors.

We found the following examples of good practice.

Visitors were greeted on arrival at the front entrance to the home, where guidance was displayed. Visitors were required to have their temperature checked, complete a health declaration, clean their hands and then supported to put on the personal protective equipment (PPE) provided. This included, aprons, masks, gloves and for some visitors, face visors too.

People's relatives were supported to visit the home. A designated room was available for visits which was adjacent to the main entrance. For those people who were unable to access the visiting room, visitors were supported to see them in their bedrooms. The provider had identified other entry points to the building in order to reduce footfall throughout the home. However, the provider was not advising visitors of the latest government guidance in relation to physical contact during visits. This was rectified following the inspection by the management of the home.

People appeared relaxed and comfortable in the presence of staff who were all wearing appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE).

People and staff were tested in line with national guidance for care homes. People and staff had been supported to receive the first COVID-19 vaccinations.

A cleaner, along with day and night staff were completing the cleaning at the home. Cleaning schedules did not consistently inform staff where to clean or what to use to clean. Touch points, such as light switches, had not been specified as areas that needed more frequent cleaning. This was rectified following the inspection by the management of the home.
