Care home in Leicester broke Covid-19 rules

By Joshua Solomon

Staff were found to be breaking Covid-19 protocols following an outbreak at a care home in Leicester.

The Care Quality Commission inspected Lester Hall Apartments in December to assess infection prevention control measures.

An inspection report published this month said: “PPE was disposed of in non-clinical bins, even when clinical bins were available. This meant the risk of infection spread was high.”

It also said during the outbreak there was no information on people’s doors regarding their Covid-19 status to help support staff to safely manage their care.
