Updated 25 May 2021

Brookfield Nursing Home is a nursing home that provides accommodation and personal and nursing care to 21 people. Accommodation is provided in one adapted building over three floors, with a passenger lift between floors. At the time of this inspection there were 18 people using the service.

We found the following examples of good practice.

The home was very clean and hygienic. The staff followed national and local guidance during the COVID-19 pandemic and rigorous systems were in place to ensure good levels of hygiene. There were cleaning schedules and other systems to ensure good infection prevention and control measures. Staff understood how to use and dispose of personal protective equipment.

Visitors were screened for COVID-19, tested and supported to perform hand hygiene and put on personal protective equipment (PPE) prior to staff escorting them directly to the visiting room via the home garden. It was designed to reduce the amount of footfall through the service.

Staff had access to supplies of PPE and had received training to ensure they used this correctly. All staff and people living at the service had regular testing for Covid-19, and all had received their vaccinations. Where people were unable to make their own decisions, capacity assessments had been carried out and decisions made in their best interests. Information about decisions, testing and vaccinations was clearly recorded to provide assurance and overview.

The registered manager was visible and supportive to staff. The registered manager sought support and advice from external agencies including the local health protection team and CQC and was open to all advice and guidance offered.
