Inspection Summary


Overall summary & rating

Updated 26 November 2020

Montfort Manor is a residential care home providing personal and nursing care to older people in one purpose-built building for up to 68 people. At the time of our inspection 38 people lived at the service.

We found the following examples of good practice

Visitors were required to complete a Covid-19 screening tool, put on a face mask and use hand sanitiser.

The provider had installed an automatic wall mounted temperature checking device and monitor. This automatically alerted staff if a visitor had a high temperature. Visitors with a high temperature were denied entry to the home.

The assistant manager used a UV lightbox which identified areas of the hands which might have been missed when washed. This was used for staff training and periodic checks to promote good hand hygiene.

A team leader was an Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) Champion. Their role was to train staff in good IPC practice.

The registered manager told us that they were block booking agency nurses, so they only worked in one care setting, minimising the risk of infection transmission.

Uniforms were laundered on-site and not allowed off-site. The registered manager told us that this would reduce the likelihood of infection being brought into the home.
