At Oaklands House Nursing Home, the safety and wellbeing of our residents are our highest priorities. We are working with the UK coronavirus vaccination programme and have implemented several robust health and safety protocols to provide peace of mind for residents and their loved ones.
We are working with the Government’s UK vaccination programme to ensure the safety of residents and staff. We are pleased to announce that several of our homes have already started to receive emails from the vaccination hubs regarding appointments for our staff to be vaccinated.
We are fully supporting our staff to ensure they are vaccinated. Our Care Home Managers are taking proactive steps to be fully prepared for the vaccinations and avoid any potential delays.
We aim to work closely with our family members as we jointly promote the vaccine to all our residents in our hope they will all agree to being vaccinated.
Our nurses now have the skills to vaccinate all residents as the vaccination becomes available to us.
We have adopted a whole-home testing approach to reduce resident self-isolation on admission.
We have also implemented the following robust infection control measures to prevent the risk of transmission:
Temperature checking of staff before coming on duty and all essential visitors to the home
