Why we inspected

We undertook this targeted inspection to check infection prevention and control due to a number of COVID-19 cases in the home. An overall rating for the service has not been given following this targeted inspection.

CQC have introduced targeted inspections to check specific concerns. They do not look at an entire key question, only the part of the key question we are specifically concerned about. Targeted inspections do not change the rating from the previous inspection. This is because they do not assess all areas of a key question.

We found the provider had taken action to manage the risk of harm to people. Please see the safe section of this full report.

Follow up

We will continue to monitor information we receive about the service until we return to visit as per our re-inspection programme. If we receive any concerning information we may inspect sooner.
