Inspection Summary


Overall summary & rating

Updated 18 November 2020

Lebrun House provides accommodation and support for up to 20 people, most of whom were living with dementia. There were 19 people living at the service when we inspected, this included two people currently in hospital.

We found the following examples of good practice.

The registered manager had followed current guidance in relation to infection prevention and control. Measures had been implemented to ensure people entering the home did so following current guidance regarding personal protective equipment (PPE) and social distancing. This included staff temperatures being taken on arrival for work and temperatures measured for essential health professional visits. The provider was not currently taking new admissions.

Staff used PPE appropriately. PPE was located in people’s rooms if appropriate and there were PPE ‘stations’ on each floor of the building to ensure staff had access to required PPE at all times. There were adequate PPE supplies in the service. Staff followed a cleaning schedule, including deep cleaning of people’s rooms and communal areas when appropriate. All staff were responsible for regular disinfection of frequently touched surfaces of the home for example handrails and bannisters. Social distancing rules were being followed.

Regular Covid-19 testing was taking place for people and staff. The registered manager was aware that testing may cause people anxiety. The process of testing was done in a relaxed, unhurried manner to ensure people felt comfortable and supported.

Staff had access to guidance and policies regarding Covid-19 and infection prevention and control. The registered manager carried out checks and audits in relation to infection prevention and control and implemented any actions identified. For example, refresher training for all staff.
