Care Home Inspection Ratings Are Spotless

A West Yorkshire based care company has achieved an impressive average infection control rating of 98.8% across all five of its nursing and care homes.

Czajka Care Group’s Fairmount Nursing Home, which is in Nab Wood near Shipley, was the final home to be inspected, achieving an ‘excellent’ rating of 99.23% following an inspection by Infection Prevention, Public Health and City of Bradford Metropolitan District Council’s Department of Health and Wellbeing.

The assessors looked at everything from general management, staff health and training, to the guidelines and policies that Czajka has in place. Examining all communal and private rooms, bathrooms and visitor WCs, the inspectors also assessed the laundry and linen management, food hygiene, waste management and the handling and disposal of sharp objects. All residential and medical equipment was also put through its paces.

Czajka Care Group’s other homes include Currergate Nursing Home in Steeton, which has a rating of 99.2%, Beanlands Nursing Home in Cross Hills, which has a rating 98.7% and Brookfield Care Home in Nab Wood, which has a rating of 99.18%. Czajka’s specialist nursing home in Nab Wood, Staveley Birk Leas, which cares for young people with a range of conditions from the age of 18 through to 64, has a rating of 97.77%.

Konrad Czajka, managing director of Czajka Care Group, said: “This latest inspection at Fairmount Nursing Home is testament to the hard work and dedication of our entire team. Our new manager, Rebecca Blackburn has immediately overseen the inspection process and quite rightly ensured that everything is spotless. Infection control is serious – proper procedures and high standards of cleanliness help keep residents healthy and mean our homes run smoothly.”
