Monitoring & Quality

At Elm Lodge Care Home, we follow strict procedures to ensure the close monitoring of all processes, services and service users alike. We recognise the importance of attention to detail, placing it at the front of our trading practices. 

We regularly ask Service Users and their relatives for comments and feedback regarding the home, particularly the environment provided, services and staff performance. This helps us to maintain strict quality control throughout all aspects of the home.

Monthly meetings are run for Service Users, relatives, friends and advocates to give their comments and discuss the areas mentioned above.

Fire Safety

All staff members are given mandatory training on fire prevention and evacuation policies. Elm Lodge Care Home is equipped with modern fire detection and alarm systems, with “Fire Exit Notices” and “Emergency Instruction Notices” strategically placed throughout, as advised by the Fire Department. All systems and alarms will be tested weekly by staff of the home. Records are kept of all testing as part of the proprietor/manager’s responsibilities. Service User are also informed of the emergency procedure during admission.

Staff are also trained in raising the alarm, evacuation points and the use of fire control appliances such as fire blankets and fire extinguishers. All fire fighting equipment is checked on an annual basis by a qualified fire extinguisher maintenance engineer.

Medication

All medication is administered by a senior Carer under instruction from the Manager. The local surgery provides additional healthcare for our Service Users, and has many years of experience in working with our residents to deliver a high standard of care, based around their needs.
