During an inspection looking at part of the service

Abbey Wood Park Care Home is a care home providing accommodation and personal care for up to 39 people. At the time of the inspection 4 people resided at the service.

We found the following examples of good practice

• A safe visiting procedure was in place and followed. Visitors to the service had their temperature taken and completed a health screening questionnaire. Hand sanitiser was available, and a PPE station and changing facilities were located near to the main reception. A temporary record of all visits was kept to support NHS Test and Trace.

• The service was registered for regular testing to ensure people and staff were tested frequently. Staff were aware of the need to self-isolate if they developed any symptoms.

• The service had a self-contained unit with a designated staff team to support people with COVID-19. Accommodation for people consisted of single rooms with washing and toileting facilities. Outdoor space was also utilised with social distancing measures in place.

• The service followed good infection prevention control standards. Training, policies, procedures and equipment were in place to maintain infection control and support the needs of the people using the service. The registered manager acted as the lead for infection prevention and control.
