Inspection Summary


Overall summary & rating

Updated 24 December 2020

Field House Residential Care Home for the Elderly provides accommodation and personal care for up to 49 people living with dementia. At the time of our inspection there were 36 people in residence. The home is built on two floors and has two communal dining rooms and three lounge areas.

We found the following examples of good practice.

The registered manager used isolation techniques and zoning during the outbreak to reduce the spread of infection. People who were COVID-19 positive were only permitted to access their own bedrooms, and communal areas within their bubble. No person with a negative result accessed these communal areas. Staff were allocated to areas within the building to work and did not cross into other areas during the outbreak.

The service was only receiving essential visitors at the time of our inspection. Any person entering the building had their temperature taken, completed a health questionnaire and wore full personal protective equipment (PPE).

All staff, including domestic and maintenance staff had received training in PPE and infection prevention and control (IPC). Senior staff had received additional training which allowed them to train staff and provide refresher training in both the use of PPE and IPC.

The registered manager completed IPC audits of the building, which also included spot check observations of staff washing their hands. If staff were found to not be following appropriate hand washing techniques, they were signposted for additional training.

The building was clean and free from clutter. During our inspection we observed domestic staff cleaning communal areas and bathrooms and ensuring that areas regularly touched by hands were disinfected.
