A Spalding nursing home has been stamped as “fully compliant” following a random inspection.

Ashwood Nursing Home was visited by industry regulators, the Care Quality Commission (CQC) for an unannounced, random inspection of Ashwood’s service.

The nursing home, which has been part of the Country Court Care Group since May 2007, has not had an inspection for a little over a year.

Ashwood was rigorously checked against several outcome areas of the Health and Social Care Act 2008 (Regulated Activities) Regulations 2010.

The feedback from the CQC was extremely positive. Country Court Care’s senior management and all staff at Ashwood Nursing Home were delighted to find out the home had received a feedback report with a “fully compliant” status.

The CQC Inspector highlighted certain areas which she felt Ashwood had excelled in, namely staff to resident communication and treating the residents with respect and integrity.

A resident stated, for the CQC report: “I’m very glad I chose here. It has a friendly and caring feel to it and I like the small scale. The staff are very considerate and I’m well cared for.”

Home manager Daniela Phillips added: “Receiving a ‘Fully Compliant’ status gives our dedicated team of staff members the recognition they deserve. We work tirelessly to maintain and increase our impeccable standards. We are all thrilled.”
