Brymore House is a care home. People in care homes receive accommodation and nursing or personal care as a single package under one contractual agreement. Brymore House is registered to accommodate up to 52 people. The service has two units, one with 27 beds which provides nursing care to older people and the other with 25 beds which provides intermediate care and rehabilitation. Forty-five people were living at the home on the day of inspection.

We found the following examples of good practice:

The provider followed best practice guidance to ensure visitors to the home did not introduce and spread COVID-19. Information and instructions for visitors were explained in person and displayed in the care home. Staff were adhering to personal protective and equipment (PPE) and social distancing guidance.

The provider had ensured all staff had a risk assessment in place, and where it was not safe for staff to be at work, they had a furlough scheme in place to protect staff and people.

The provider had an infection prevention and control policy that outlined the requirement for isolation rooms for people infected with COVID-19 and people admitted to the home from the hospital or the community.

People were supported to see their visitors at the care home. When this was not possible, they were supported to speak to their families on the phone or via video call.

The provider invited an independent infection prevention and control nurse to carry out an audit of the premises. The provider completed all identified actions by the time of inspection.
