The New Deanery review inspection during COVID-19 outbreak

By 15th August, 2020 News Comments Off

Last week The New Deanery was subject to a Thematic Review’ inspection by CQC. We were one of 300 care homes in the UK chosen as part of CQC’s work to understand how care homes are dealing with the  Coronavirus pandemic, and the visit focussed purely on this.

They picked us because we have, so far, kept the virus at bay.

Their findings were as follows:

  • They were assured that the provider was preventing visitors from catching and spreading infections.
  • They were assured that the provider was meeting shielding and social distancing rules.
  • They were assured that the provider was admitting people safely to the service.
  • They were assured that the provider was using PPE effectively and safely.
  • They were assured that the provider was accessing testing for people using the service and staff.
  • They were assured that the provider was promoting safety through the layout and hygiene practices of the premises.
  • They were assured that the provider was making sure infection outbreaks can be effectively prevented or managed.
  • They were assured that the provider’s infection prevention and control policy was up to date.
