Inspection Summary


Overall summary & rating

Good

Updated 23 April 2021

The Beeches is a care home providing personal care and accommodation for up to 56 people. At the time of our inspection there were 40 people using the service.

We found the following examples of good practice.

There was a designated area for visitors which could be accessed without entering the main building. This allowed for COVID-19 tests and visits to take place with no contact with other people and minimal contact with care home staff which reduced risks.

Visitors were sent information ahead of a visit to explain the infection prevention and control procedure and reinforce the importance of safety.

Our observations during the inspection provided assurance that staff were adhering to Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and social distancing guidance.

Staff wore photographic identity badges so that people using the service recognised them whilst wearing PPE, this helped to reduce anxiety and provided reassurance.

Staff compliance with infection prevention and control procedures was monitored through a process of assessments. This included observed practice and utilising technology such as an UV light device to monitor hand hygiene.

Staff wellbeing was promoted; group discussions and individual meetings provided the opportunity to raise questions and discuss concerns.

There were comprehensive cleaning schedules in place with frequent cleaning of touch points and high traffic areas to provide assurance of a regular cleaning regime.
