Orchard Court is an eight-bedded home for young people. It provides personal care and accommodation for up to eight younger adults with multiple and profound disabilities, in a purpose-built, fully adapted, building on Hollybank campus. At the time of our inspection it was providing this service to eight young adults.

We found the following examples of good practice.

Staff followed government guidance in relation to personal protective equipment (PPE). All staff were wearing face masks. The home had sufficient supplies of PPE.

A documented ongoing testing regime was in place for visitors, staff and people living in the home. Appropriate processes were in place should anyone display any symptoms of Covid-19.

All areas of the home were subject to regular and enhanced cleaning regimes. We observed the home to be clean and well maintained.

Staff supported people’s social and emotional wellbeing. Alternative forms of maintaining social contact were in place including regular video calls. The home had plans in place to commence visiting in line with current guidance.

All staff had undertaken training in infection prevention and control (IPC) and the donning and doffing of PPE.
