‘Proud of the Team’: Avon Valley Receive CQC Inspection Report

Avon Valley Care Home in Bristol recently received a new Care Quality Commission (CQC) inspection report. To help continue to support care services as safely as possible, CQC has changed how they monitor and inspect the care industry. Replacing the previous ESF framework inspection, the new transitional framework focusses on key areas such as infection prevention and control.

In the report, it was noted that Avon Valley showcased good levels of home maintenance, particularly in protecting staff and residents during the pandemic. CQC found the home to be clean ‘with regular cleaning taking place throughout the day.’ And staff members were praised for their appropriate use of PPE and clear training ‘to don and doff equipment’ effectively.

Delighted with the report despite the challenges experienced throughout the year, Home Manager, Alyson Day, commented, “I am really pleased with the outcome of the inspection. And although it’s been a difficult year for all, I am proud of the team; we have amazing residents, staff and relatives who have continuously supported us during those hard times.”

Congratulations to all at Avon Valley Care Home!
