Inspection Summary


Overall summary & rating

Good

Updated 23 December 2020

Oldbury Grange Nursing Home is a care home providing personal and nursing care to 49 people aged 65 and over at the time of the inspection in one adapted building. The service can support up to 69 people. At the time of inspection, we did not look at the whole service, we solely inspected the areas that had been identified for the designated setting. This unit accommodated 9 people and 3 people were residing there at the time of inspection.

We found the following examples of good practice.

• People who had tested positive for Covid-19 were supported in a self contained unit and self isolated in line with current guidance. This ensured people were cared for safely who had tested positive for Covid-19 in hospital and needed to transfer to a care home under the Winter Discharge Designation Settings scheme.

• People were supported to communicate with their relatives through regular telephone and video calls. The registered manager held virtual meetings with relatives to provide updates regarding the service.

• People were supported by a cohort of staff that worked solely on the unit where people had tested positive for Covid-19.

• People were supported by staff who were trained in infection prevention and control and wore Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) in line with current guidance.

• People with sensory impairments were supported to communicate through the use of white boards and pictorial cards. Staff wore name badges with their photographs so people could identify them when wearing PPE.

• People were supported in a clean and uncluttered environment. Cleaning schedules were in place in line with current guidance and these were complied with.

• Audit checks were in place that identified any actions related to infection prevention and control and these were addressed in a timely manner.

We were assured that this service met good infection prevention and control guidelines as a designated care setting.
