STAFF and residents at The Donnington Bupa Care Home in Newbury are celebrating a recent ‘Good’ rating from the regulator, the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

The announcement follows an unannounced inspection of the service.

The CQC also recognised the efforts of The Donnington’s commitment to medicine safety and infection prevention control, ensuring medicines were ordered, stored, administered, and recorded in the correct way and provided assurance of the use of personal protective equipment (PPE), and adherence to shielding/social distancing guidelines in line with COVID-19 policy.

Home Manager, Roseann Sweeney, said: “Achieving a ‘good’ CQC rating is a real testament to our continued commitment in delivering the best quality care for our residents, and we’re exceptionally proud to have our efforts recognised within this report.

“Management and staff have worked ever so hard to implement a range of new systems over the past 12 months.

"We are thrilled to be recognised for our hard work and look forward to continuing this, as we keep on providing the best quality care to our residents.”
