Inspection Summary


Overall summary & rating

Good

Updated 11 March 2021

Andrew Cohen House provides accommodation, nursing and personal care to a maximum of 59 older people. Some people lived with dementia. At the time of our inspection 51 people lived at the home.

We found the following examples of good practice.

¿ A visiting pod was available for relatives to visit their family member. The pod was accessed from the garden which reduced the possibility of infection being introduced into the home. A relatives online meeting was planned to discuss the new government visiting directive.

¿ The home was spacious offering a number of communal areas. All bedrooms were single occupancy with full wet room facilities. These promoted social distancing and decreased the risk of infection transmission.

¿ Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) guidance was adhered to when new people were admitted to the home.

¿ There was enough Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) available in stock and throughout the home. Staff wore PPE in line with guidance.

¿ Staff underwent a COVID-19 test three times a week and people every 28 days. People or staff who tested positive were required to self-isolate in line with current government guidance.

¿ The premises were clean. Additional cleaning staff hours had been used when required. Appropriate cleaning products were used throughout the home.

¿ Staff received IPC training which included donning and doffing and PPE usage.

¿ The registered manager had a good insight of how to deal with any infectious outbreaks. The provider's IPC policy was updated when new government guidance had been issued.
